Volunteer and Support NWVRA!

Our teams, our association and our sport would not be possible without the dedicated effort of many volunteers every year.

In non-profit sports organizations, the membership must make financial and time contributions for the association to succeed. The financial contribution is achieved through registration fees and fundraising. The time contribution is achieved through required volunteer hours. With the hard work and dedication of all the association’s members, NWVRA will continue to grow and ensure ringette is enjoyed by all participants.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are many great opportunities to support our ringette association through volunteering and sponsorship. If you are interested in helping with any of the following for this season, please contact volunteers@nwvra.ca (except where noted).

Each family is responsible for a total of at least four volunteer hours. If there is more than one player from a family within a season, then the first player counts for four hours, then two hours are required per subsequent player. If the player is a new registrant, then that family is responsible for a total of at least three volunteer hours for the first year only. Hours can be earned from June 1st (upon registration) to April 30th.

Coaching - Contact coaches@nwvra.ca to apply

Executive Roles

Every year we hold an Annual General Meeting where you can volunteer for one of the NWVRA board positions. Most vacancies are filled for this season but feel free to either volunteer for one of the remaining few vacancies or to help one of the existing volunteer board members if you think they could use a hand!
