Volunteer

1In addition to players, the Inferno is also looking for able-bodied individuals to help out with equipment management and team support. These people would help with such things as the day-to-day maintenance and assembly of wheelchairs, equipment transport and handling, driving, and helping players to transfer between their day chairs and their rugby chairs. We may also require help with administration and accounting activities.
