"Being a Venue Director is an extremely full-filling and rewarding experience. You not only have the opportunity to work with and get to know amazing volunteers and SOVT staff, but you also get to work with and get to know extremely dedicated coaches, impassioned parents and phenomenal athletes. As a Venue Director, you get to experience the total event in the Games from the planning, set-up and competition to the awards and take-down. It is a lot of work and a big time commitment but very memorable, leaving you with a very full heart." Holly Scudder-Chase, Alpine/Snowboard Venue Director, SOVT Winter Games
