Become a BAM Volunteer

As BAM has grown, we need more people to help make everything run smoothly, helping the event and community while still having time to enjoy and have fun.

So if you have some spare time to assist, whether it be during Friday setup, Sunday packdown, or during the main events on Saturday and Sunday, please click here for the Volunteers Application Form.

Volunteering for BAM makes you a part of the event, helps your fellow players and spectators, and is heaps of fun! While you’re rostered on in alternating shifts, you are a friendly face of the community, and in your down time you get to take part.

Based on your shift, each volunteer will also be provided food and drink, entry to the event and afterparty, and our ongoing thanks!

So let us know if would you like to join the CouchWarriors BAM10 team, we need you!
