    RiverPlex Facility Assistants

    We run the Jingle Bell Run and then quickly transition it into youth basketball.  We would love 2-3 volunteers this day to assist with the transition of the two set ups of Jingle Bell and then after Jingle Bell into Youth Basketball!

    Dec. 3rd is the Date if you want to pass that along. I might be looking to hire one person for arena events only to assist with our busy volleyball tournament season coming up. That would be more towards end of January.

    Basketball Coach

    If they are interested in coaching I have a basketball league that starts in January.  The commitment would be one day during the week on Monday or Wednesday and Saturday afternoon.  It is an hour each time.

    I might need a coach or two for the league that just started at the Riverplex on Monday/Thursday/Saturday.

    Peoria Playhouse

    Thanks so much for this great information. I would be willing to bet we’ll have some opportunities for these kids at the PlayHouse over the upcoming holidays! The positions at the PlayHouse available would definitely be easy enough for one of these students to assist with.

    HISRA Health Club

    HISRA hosts an Annual Game Day at the RiverPlex the first Saturday of January every year.  This is a Special Olympics Basketball tournament we host with teams from all across the state.  We usually run 3 courts with games running from 8AM to around 4PM, depending on the the number of teams that can make it.  We can use plenty of volunteers to run the score board, keep the book, work concessions and other tasks.  This year our event will take place on Saturday, January 7th.
