On Sunday, March 15 a Special Olympics Wisconsin basketball tournament will be held at UW-Stevens Point from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

Volunteer positions are open for scorekeepers, timers, results, athlete escorts, and awards. Awards will start around 12:00 p.m. Volunteers can work the whole day or half a day with lunch included.

People who are interested should go to the following site to sign up:


The tournament at UW-Stevens Point is one of two qualifiers for the State Championship in Oshkosh. The second qualifier is held at Mukwonago High school.

The tournament has around 60 teams participating and will last about ten and a half hours, but volunteers do not need to stay the entire time and can leave early
