2024 Games Of Texas-Brownsville Looking For Volunteers

If you’re looking for a fun and fulfilling activity this summer, consider volunteering for the Games of Texas-Brownsville. Scheduled from July 25 through July 28, this exciting event will take place across several venues in Brownsville, bringing together over 10,000 athletes from across the state.

This year’s Games are particularly noteworthy, with the introduction of four new sports: volleyball, sand volleyball, kickball, and baseball. These additions expand the total number of sports to 16, promising an action-packed schedule for participants and spectators alike.

Sean De Palma, director of the Parks and Recreation Department for the City of Brownsville, and Araceli Sandoval, athletics supervisor for the Parks and Recreation Department, both said more volunteers will be needed this year since additional games have been added.

“What we do need from everybody is volunteerism. We need to be the ambassadors of our community; we need to champion how amazing and beautiful Brownsville is,” De Palma said. “It is going to be welcoming people. It’s going to be that human connection in that relationship building that we bring the guests into our home of Brownsville and we welcome them.”

Volunteers will work in short shifts, ensuring that their contributions are manageable and enjoyable without requiring a significant time commitment. Moreover, no prior sports knowledge is necessary to volunteer. Volunteers will be provided with a T-shirt and meals as a token of appreciation for their efforts.

“We invite you all to come out and volunteer,” Sandoval said. “It’s a great event.”

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of one of the summer’s most exciting events. Volunteering for the Games of Texas-Brownsville is a fantastic way to support your community, meet new people, and experience the thrill of a major sporting event.
