The Summer and Winter Iowa Games would not be possible without our volunteers.  Volunteers range from our sport directors, support crew, medical personnel and generic volunteers.


The Ames Convention and Visitors Bureau organizes the majority of our recruitment for our volunteers for the Summer Iowa Games.  Beginning on June 1 individuals can start signing up for volunteer opportunities with the Summer Iowa Games.  Volunteers receive a Summer Iowa Games t-shirt for helping.
