Volunteer Program for 2003 Los Angeles Games
August 5-8, 2004
On June 10, 2004 ESPN announced the launch of their
volunteer program for the Summer X Games in Los
Angeles, California August 5-8, 2004.
ESPNís X Games, the premier action sports competition, returns to
Los Angeles for its second consecutive year. X Games X will be held in and around
STAPLES Center, Home Depot Center, Huntington Beach Pier and Long Beach Marine
Stadium from August 5-8, 2004. ESPN staff is looking forward to finding dedicated
action sports fans as well as newcomers to cover the more than 730 day-long
volunteer positions needed for the duration of the event.
X Games X staff is looking to the local and regional communities for people who
are willing to volunteer for a full day, assisting in this multi-event action
sports competition. Several day-long volunteer positions are available including:
hospitality, crowd control, ushering, access control and credential checking.
The X Games also offer the XCEL program, designed for dedicated individuals who
are willing to volunteer every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., August 4-8.
Anyone interested in becoming an X Games X volunteer must be 18 years of age by
August 1, 2004. The
website is accepting
applications beginning June 15 for daily and XCEL volunteers.
"We have thousands of spectators that visit the X Games venues and we look to
the volunteers to assist with maintaining a positive and friendly environment
in the hub of action sports - Southern California," said Sharon Walsh, Manager of
Volunteer Services. "We are fortunate to have highly motivated and dedicated
individuals join our volunteer program year after year. It is the type of
dedication that makes the X Games such a success."
The primary function of a volunteer is to assist the spectators and credentialed
guests during the event. Volunteers are expected to be proactive, helpful and
knowledgeable hosts to spectators during their visit at the X Games.
Volunteers will be privy to X Games X apparel, sponsor goody bags, snacks and
refreshments and will also receive an invitation to the private X Games volunteer
appreciation party. Additionally, XCEL volunteers who make themselves available
for the duration of the event will receive an extra X Games X token of appreciation.
In addition to the other items that volunteers will receive, there will be the
chance to take part in a daily raffle of items donated by local and industry
businesses. Businesses that donate items to be entered into the volunteer
raffle will gain exposure by having their company name included in the volunteer
handbook and the on-site jumbotron at X Games X. Local businesses can log onto
for more information on how to get involved.
