Volunteers play a vital role in the success of the Regions Tradition tournament, which benefits over 80 local charities, including Children’s of Alabama, which serves as the primary beneficiary of the tournament! We will be enlisting the help of approximately 1,000 volunteers to work on various committees, but more importantly, we want to ensure that each individual has a once-in-a-lifetime experience! With volunteer positions available throughout the course, with the players, on the Driving Range and even inside of the ropes, volunteers will have a behind-the-scenes, unparalleled PGA TOUR Champions experience! There are over 20 different volunteer committees to choose from and we ask that all volunteers sign-up for a minimum of three shifts, approximately 4-6 hours each, throughout the week of the tournament. 2017 Volunteer Registration will open in November 2016.
Regions Tradition asks that all volunteers purchase a Volunteer Uniform Package. The package fee subsidizes the cost of the volunteer uniform and other package items, and theraby supports the tournament's endeavor to generate more funds to donate and distribute to local charities.
Cost: $60 (retail value of $295)
Cost: $95 (retail value of $415)
Volunteers are assigned to a variety of committees, performing the many tasks required to conduct a PGA TOUR Champions event. A description of each committee is available for your review prior to your selection of committee choices on the online Volunteer Application. Each volunteer is given the opportunity to list three committee preferences. Volunteers will be notified of their committee assignment through email once the Volunteer Application is completed. Committee assignments are granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Read the various job committee descriptions here.
Shifts and Schedules
All volunteers are required to work a minimum of 3 shifts over the course of the tournament. Shifts are approximately 4-6 hours long, but can vary depending on the committee. On the online application, you will have the opportunity to select your availability. Please note, these times are not your final schedule, but will serve as a starting point for your Committee Chairman as they create a shift schedule. Once shift assignments have been made, volunteers will be available to view their personal schedule through their volunteer online profile. Volunteer schedules will be completed in early April 2017.
Junior Volunteers ages 13-17 also have the opportunity to volunteer at the tournament by serving as a Standard Bearer. Standard Bearers have the exciting role of walking inside of the ropes with a player group while carrying a two-sided scoring standard to keep spectators informed of who is playing in the group and how the player stands with respect to par both in the round being played and cumulatively. Standard Bearer positions are available Wednesday-Sunday during the tournament. Junior Volunteers do not have to purchase the Volunteer Package. They will receive a complimentary t-shirt and hat to wear upon arriving for their first shift.
