A. There are so many ways to get involved with GeoPlunge! Contact us and we can talk through the ways you can get involved: being a mentor to a GeoPlunge team, volunteering at a GeoPlunge Tournament, recruiting others to join you, organizing a tournament, and many more. Opportunities range from activities that take just a few hours to on-going volunteer opportunities.
A. Not at all! High school students make some of our best volunteers! There is nothing better than having high school students mentor younger students. We are happy to document your volunteer hours for classes that require service hours too. It is a win-win all around!
A.We have had several companies organize groups of employees to volunteer at a GeoPlunge tournament who have never played the games before. You can access all of the tournament rules on our website and access to training videos ahead of time so the volunteers can come to the tournament prepared. You will be very impressed with the knowledge these students bring to the competition table!
A. Great! We need sponsors for tournaments across the country. Sponsors provide monetary support for our efforts. Please contact us for a list of sponsorship levels and benefits.
A. Check our resources for individual game rules and tournament rules. If you are a visual learner, we are building our library of video tutorials too.
