PREPARATION CHECKLIST

Recruitment
Star Playgrounds will verify the build date. Please notify all volunteers as soon as possible.
Recruit volunteers over the age of 14 to assist with the construction and
assembly. It may be easier to break the day into two time periods (morning
and afternoon) and have the morning volunteers stay through lunch and the
afternoon volunteers start with lunch. This allows the volunteers who can
only stay for a portion of the day a set time period to work. This will also
help determine the number of volunteers you will need to recruit.

Our Project Coordinator or Sales Reps can help determine the total
number of volunteers needed

Make adequate number of copies of the Volunteer Waiver Form.

Set up a Registration Table with waivers, sunscreen, name tags, first aid kit and water.
