On-Ice volunteers help coaches coordinate and facilitate drills, retrieve pucks, move nets and push players who have limited upper body mobility in sleds.
Off-ice volunteers help with new players, equipment fitting, transferring players into and out of sleds, moving players onto and off the ice, and organizing the equipment room at practices. We also need help with social media and writing blogs for our website.
Practices are Mondays 4:45pm-5:45pm and select Saturdays starting at 4:10pm. We are hosting a few tournaments this year and will need volunteers to help at, too.
