Get involved!

There are a number of ways for you to be a part of our league.  Learn about each position below.

  • Our biggest fan is YOU!
    Come out to each and every ARDA bout and event.  Bring a cow bell and your cheering voice.  You'll need them!  Check the website often to find out what we're up to. 
  • Volunteer
    We’re always looking for volunteers to help out at bouts and events.  Tasks normally include taking tickets, selling merchandise, and helping with crowd control.  Plus, you'll get in to the event free!
