Get involved! You are critical to the success of our club!

Our club runs on the efforts of our volunteer board members, coaches and parents and we need your help. There are so many ways in which you can get involved and help out, ensuring that our club can continue to operate and have fun at the same time, and many volunteer groups have roles that will fit your busy schedule.

Below are just some of roles that need to be filled.

Everyone: Pushing mat carts onto the ice at the start of an ice session, and taking mat carts off the ice at the end an ice session.

We need help gathering A+ content for our social media pages! Email members@kwspeedskating.com with your photos and short video, or to discuss being given direct access to update our social media pages.

We need help sharpening our rental skates! If you know how to sharpen skates, please sign up for a spot in our skate sharpening schedule at the beginning of the season.

If your skater is in the Learn to Train group or higher, we encourage you to sharpen your own skates between practices.
