Season Pass

What it is

The Northern Combine is trialing a Volunteer Season Pass - unlimited racing at 2019 Northern Combine events for only $45.

How it works

  1. Join the volunteer roster.
  2. Buy this season pass online
  3. When events open for entry, you can enter immediately online - no further payment required.

Note: You are able to access the volunteer pass as soon as you have submitted your volunteer nomination. The Northern Combine Volunteer Coordinator will contact you and together you will confirm your race assignment. If for some reason you cannot agree to a race, your Vol Season Pass will be rescinded.


Who is eligible?

The volunteer season pass is currently open to all volunteers - who can be from any club, including non-combine clubs. Northern Suburbs 3 Day Tour volunteers are also eligible.


Eligible Events

Note: what's not included

1) Race entry to The Northern Suburbs 3 Day Tour is not included. People volunteering for the Northern Suburbs 3 Day Tour are also able to take up this season pass for the Northern Combine races season.

2) Invitational Events The NC official fixture expanded this season, with some events hosted by non-NC clubs. These are 'fixture sharing' in nature (ie races hosted by Geelong, Footscray or Carnegie Caulfield) and run on a reciprocal invitational basis. The NC does not control entries to these invitational events and as a result, these are excluded from this offer.


Volunteering - What's Involved

Full details here.

  • To be recognised as a volunteer, you need to register for a volunteer duty.
  • The Volunteer Coordinator then needs to confirm you in a duty.
  • You are expected to complete one duty at some point in the season (you risk losing vol status if no mutually suitable duty can be found).
  • You cannot race on the day you perform your duty (unless - see next)
  • You can have someone else perform your duty on your behalf (must be as capable and willing as you are)
  • All vols are briefed prior to their roles so do not necessarily need direct race volunteer experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Do I Find the Vol Roster?

Please nominate for a duty here https://goo.gl/TRFD3Q. The Vol Coordinator will confirm your preferred role or help organise an alternative date.

Are numbers limited?

Once the volunteer roster is full, we'll be closing this offer. NC club members will be given preferential entry (but still need to be quick).

Do I still have to Enter races?

Yes - you'll still need to enter races, you just won't need to pay any more. This is to prevent "no shows" impacting the integrity of the startlists for individual races - especially handicaps.

Can I Get a Refund for Unused Races?

Sorry, no refunds or partial refunds.

Can I Enter as Normal and Claim Vol Status?

Yes, volunteers can enter & pay race-by-race ($15) as normal. The Season pass is optional and offered as a special reward for those who give back to racing through volunteering.
