Show-Me State Games Volunteer Registration

The Show-Me STATE GAMES are THE LARGEST STATE GAMES IN THE NATION!

One key reason to our success as the largest games event is our outstanding volunteers who dedicate their time and energy in making the Games run so smoothly! We cannot thank you enough for giving us your time! 

Once you've registered to volunteer, we will email you to confirm we've received your application. A week prior to the Games, you will receive an additional email to confirm your volunteer assignment. It is important to apply early for the best chance at being placed at your sport of preference. If you DO NOT receive an email, please reach out to us at [email protected] or 573-884-2946.


All volunteers receive a free shirt! 

Please be sure to read the Q&A to learn more about being a SMSG Volunteer!

We will use this method to send you your volunteer shift, reminders, invite to banquet, etc.
