The Big Ten Football Championship Game

We appreciate your willingness and enthusiasm to volunteer for the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game. At this time most volunteer positions for this event have been filled, but we still need volunteers to help us with our SaturDAY of Service program at Gleaners Food Bank.  Volunteers working these Community Programs only are not required to work multiple shifts or attend the orientation session.

Welcome to the 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game!

The Big Ten Football Championship Game will feature the champions of the Legends Division and the Leaders Division, with the winner earning the Big Ten title and a chance to play in either the Rose Bowl Game or Bowl Championship Series National Championship Game. The 2013 Big Ten Football Championship Game will begin at 8:17 p.m. ET on Saturday, December 7 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis and will be televised by FOX Sports.

Indianapolis will be packed with fans from the two participating universities, in addition to sports fans from across the country, as our city welcomes a national television audience.  In addition to the Championship Game, the Big Ten Fan Fest will take place at the Indiana Convention Center on game day from 10 a.m. until kick-off. There will also be twelve local restaurant pairings featuring the Legends and Leaders divisions, in addition to Big Ten RV Nation, the The Meijer Tailgreater Party on Georgia Street, and much more.

The Big Ten Conference and Indiana Sports Corp have entered into an agreement to host Big Ten Football Championship Games at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis through at least 2015.

Whether a veteran volunteer who takes pride in Indianapolis and exceeds all expectations just like the city itself, or a new volunteer with new ideas and energy, we are searching for those who will make our guests remember their unique experience in Indianapolis.

Key volunteer information you should know:

1. REQUIREMENTS: All volunteers are required to register for a minimum of two (2) volunteer shifts (not counting the mandatory Volunteer Orientation event) and cannot exceed three (3) volunteer shifts.  EXCEPTION: Those only working SaturDAY of Service are not required to attend the volunteer orientation session. ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST BE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER.

2. TRAINING: Additionally, all volunteers are asked to attend a mandatory volunteer orientation session where they will receive the official uniform shirt, information specific to this event, parking passes, credentials, and other instruction.

3. UNIFORM: The official volunteer uniform shirt should be worn with clean and well maintained tan khaki pants or skirt and comfortable shoes.

4. BACKGROUND SCREENING: Indiana Sports Corp (ISC) requires background screens for all volunteer positions that involve youth. These positions are marked with an asterisk (*) within the registration site that displays all available shifts. These background screens are done by an independent third party at NO COST TO YOU. Once you have signed up for a youth-specific volunteer position, you will receive an e-mail from ISC one month before the event with the link to National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) for the background screen. NCSI will collect the necessary information from you directly and conduct the background screen. Your information is maintained by NCSI; ISC does not have access to your personal information.

Upon completion of your background screen, you will receive an e-mail directly from NCSI. The email will confirm that you have filled out the necessary information for the check and let you know it is processing. To check the status and results of your check you will need to return to and on the bottom click “check your background screening status”. You will not receive any communication from NCSI or ISC if you have passed (“green light”). If you failed (“red light”) the background screen for any reason including an incomplete application you will receive notification from NCSI. The notification will not include any other information or explanation supporting NCSI’s determination; however, the notification will include contact information should you want to discuss the results with an NCSI representative.

If you receive a red light notification, you will not be able to volunteer for youth-specific positions and your volunteer assignments will be cancelled. ISC will not ask you for details or explanations for a red light notification, and cannot assist you in researching or understanding a red light notification. ISC will abide by the notification provided by NCSI, and will not “override” that designation under any circumstances. You may have the opportunity to sign up for another volunteer opportunity to the extent that other assignments are available.

ISC follows the National Council of Youth Sports (NCYS) guidelines; a red light (fail) designation results for any of the following:

  • Any felony (any crime punishable by confinement greater than one year)
    • Defined on the basis of exposure for the offense for which the defendant was convicted, pled guilty or pled nolo contendere. If pled down, then the crime to which the defendant ultimately pled.
    • Any lesser crime involving force or threat of force against a person
    • Any lesser crime in which sexual relations is an element, including “victimless” crimes of a sexual nature (including pornography).
    • Any lesser crime involving controlled substances (not paraphernalia or alcohol).
    • Any lesser crime involving cruelty to animals
