With the recent launch of ticket sales and only four months to go until players hit the ice, the World Ringette Championship (WRC) organizing committee has put a call out for volunteers. Almost 40 people have already signed up and the committee is hoping to have 100 volunteers by October.
Tannis Tapley is the Volunteer Coordinator for the WRC host committee and is seeking people who can commit to one of the many volunteer positions required to deliver a world class event.
“This event is volunteer driven and we need the ringette community’s help. There are many volunteer opportunities for those familiar with ringette and also for those who are new to the sport.”
The call for volunteers is going out far and wide, as BC plays host to the World Championships of ringette —the first time the event is held in the province. Anyone interested in volunteering at the World Ringette Championships is encouraged to contact the host committee by completing the volunteer application form on our website.
World Ringette Championships 2019 brings together seven teams from around the world to compete for the top prize in ringette. Teams Canada and Finland will each send two squads (senior and junior national teams), with one team each coming from USA, Czech Republic, and Sweden.
Ringette’s world championships are being hosted by Sport Burnaby, Ringette BC, and the Lower Mainland Ringette League — British Columbia’s largest ringette league composed of ten member associations covering an area from Hope to Squamish. The tournament will leave behind a legacy fund, which will support development, coaching, and high performance ringette programs in the Lower Mainland.
