The Rider Squad, Our Fan Ambassador Team
THE RIDER SQUAD, OUR FAN AMBASSADOR TEAM
Hey Rider Nation, are you looking for possibly the best ticket in town.
The Rider Squad may just have a premium seat for you.
We are currently drafting team members and if you would like to go in the first round please let us know.
Saskatchewan is the home of some of the most amazing volunteers in the country! We are always on the look out for outstanding people to join our amazing team. Not only are you front and centre as a Fan Experience Ambassador for all the Rider homes games, but also possibly other events including concerts, sports events and Rider Fan activities.
From our Guides and Ticket Scanners to Guest Relations, Hosts and all our other roles we are there to help ensure the experience is the best it can be for our guests.
As Fan Experience Ambassadors our goal is to assist all our guests in realizing the best possible experience possible through all our interactions with them. After all we have the best fans.
Our Rider Squad Members not only have the opportunity to interact with the best fans but also receive an exclusive and unique uniform including a jacket and a polo style shirt, ball cap and more. We will provide you with all the training you need, either in person in the pre-season or online. You can schedule yourself online for each of the shifts you wish to volunteer for as well as cancel where your plans have changed.
We offer a variety of incentives as well as part of our way of saying thank you. They may include, but aren’t limited to merchandise, autographed items, gift cards, tickets to events, food at games and concerts and some great picture/behind the scenes opportunities. We open the season with a Tailgate Party and end with a Recognition Reception (there is a minimum games or events and hours requirement for the year end).
We do ask for a minimum commitment from each volunteer of 6 games over the course of the season. In addition, you also receive credit for the hours you contribute to other events. We do ask for a onetime commitment of $50.00, in return you get an exclusive Rider Squad Uniform (value of over $300.00), a meal ticket for every game you work and the opportunity to attend private events, and the opportunity to win some great prizes.
We are extremely proud of all our dedicated Rider volunteers who give back in true Saskatchewan fashion…with a smile.
