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

Our club runs on the efforts of our volunteers: board members, coaches and parents. 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.

At Practice: Scheduled Monthly

Everyone must take turns 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.

Parents are also scheduled to act as designated rinkside control person during practices (filling water buckets, helping with practice equipment, etc).

Ongoing: Skate Sharpening

We need help sharpening our rental skates! If you know how to sharpen skates, please sign up to be on our sharpening team.

If you have been with the club for 2+ years, we encourage you to sharpen your own skates between practices. In-person sharpening clinics will occur throughout the season.
