Volunteer Coaches

Youth hockey couldn’t happen without the parents and community volunteers that help with all facets of the game. We have opportunities for volunteer coaches, team managers, score keepers, clock managers and penalty box managers. It's a great way to help out and build friendships and community that will last a lifetime.

Learn more about the volunteer commitments, benefits and training by completing the questionnaire or visiting our Volunteers page.
