First Shift - Volunteers Needed
Submitted By Brett Bickerton on Thursday, December 5, 2019
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!
We are looking for volunteers for our upcoming NHL/NHLPA First Shift program. 

First Shift is an introductory hockey program for kids and we are thrilled to be chosen as a First Shift Centre again this year.

We need volunteers, both on and off the ice to make our Winter session another successful event. 

Our Welcome "Kick Off" Event for our Winter Session takes place on Monday, January 20, 2020 in the Concourse Room at the WMC (meeting room between the two rinks). 

Our first "on ice" session is February 8, 2020 at 1pm on our McLeod Ice Pad. 

ON ICE INSTRUCTORS
We require "On Ice" Instructors for our sessions that begin on Feb 8th and run for 6 consecutive Saturdays at 1pm on our McLeod ice pad, as follows:

February 8th 
February 15th
February 22nd
February 29th
March 7th
March 14th 

In order to qualify to be an On Ice Instructor, you must:

*Be rostered on a Woolwich team as a Coach, Assistant Coach, Trainer or Manager; OR
*Be rostered on another sanctioned Association's team (ie - Woolwich Wild, Waterloo Wolves, etc..) and provide us with a copy of an up to date police check (obtained in the last 3 years)
*Be rostered on a Woolwich team or another sanctioned Association team as a player or goaltender (if under 16, you must wear full equipment during ice times)

Our on ice volunteers, receive a free helmet, pair of gloves, stick and warm up suit (pending available stock). You will be fitted at our Welcome Event. 

OFF ICE VOLUNTEERS
We need help at our Welcome Event, checking in and registering our First Shift Participants. We also need help at each of our on ice sessions to answer any questions about the Program and help with check in. 

For more information about volunteering with the Woolwich First Shift Program and/or plan to volunteer please contact Nadia Elmasry Weiss at
