JOIN OUR TEAM!
Enjoy meeting new people and being a part of a team? Can’t get enough of our beautiful Canadian winters? Get in on the action and join us as we celebrate Canada’s biggest and best outdoor version of our nation’s favourite pastime! It is no secret that the success of staging an event like the Canadian National Pond Hockey Championships relies heavily on the support and efforts of an incredible team of volunteers!
The CNPHC is always looking for great people to help put this huge event together and to assist throughout the course of the tournament weekends. We have many volunteer positions available so we should be able to accommodate your requests. Join our team and we’ll promise to deliver cold noses, great hockey and a lot of laughs and friendships along the way!
Are you a people person? Prefer to work indoors? We are looking for outgoing, organized individuals who are willing to assist with the following areas:
A good fit for individuals who enjoy meeting new people! Set up inside Pinestone Resort on the Friday morning of the event. This area is a hive of activity! Here you will help teams check-in, as well as hand out team gifts and information packages. You are the first face representing the CNPHC and welcoming teams to this event so a friendly personality goes a long way!
With Volunteer Headquarters set up near the rinks site – you will meet & greet volunteers as they arrive; check them in/out; hand out their packages; direct them to their assigned tasks and assist in keeping the volunteer room topped up with warm drinks and goodies to help fuel this awesome team of people!
“Pond Gear” merch booth set up inside Pinestone Resort. Enjoy engaging with participants from across the nation while you assist them in finding the perfect fit in the latest pond gear! Also doubles as “customer assistance” booth.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy some up close moments with the teams and this fast paced game of hockey! We are seeking volunteers who are prepared to work outdoors during the tournament as there are many “on-ice” positions available. This is where all the real action happens and the place to be if you are a fan of the game!
