The ETDS is only possible due to the many hours of volunteer work we put in as a community. Besides the organization of the event, there are a lot of tasks that have to be done during the weekend. For these tasks, we need your help! We have organized all the work that needs to be done during the weekend in shifts. These shifts are typically a 1-hour duty after which the next person takes over.
The shifts are covered by the OHH (obligatory helping hours), regular volunteers, and super volunteers.
Obligatory Helping Hours (OHH)
All team captains receive a list of obligatory shifts for their team, constituting 1 hour per participant. It is up to the team captains how to distribute these shifts over their team members.
Next to the obligatory helping hours, many people contribute to the ETDS by taking additional volunteer shifts. Apart from a great experience and our eternal gratitude as a community, your team will earn points for the Tanzmaus for additional volunteering work. More information can be found on the Tanzmaus tab, when it’s online.
Super volunteers are the backbone of the ETDS and are the people who are volunteering the whole weekend for a minimum of 25 hours. Therefore, as a super volunteer, you will not be able to participate in the tournament. However, to compensate for your contribution you will receive food, a sleeping spot, and a wonderful experience free of charge. Registration for the super-volunteers is handled in the xTDS portal. You can sign up by
After signing up as a super-volunteer, the organizing committee will decide whether your help as a super volunteer is required, so note that you are not guaranteed to get in after signing up.

This means that we want to make sure everyone can get a tosti during lunch, and will need a couple of volunteers to help us run everything in a factory-like way: smooth as butter!
Unfortunately, a couple of night shifts are needed, because the security is not present during the early hours of the morning. This means that early birds are encouraged to get up early and claim a shift.
