One of the goals of the WVHL is to create leaders on and off the ice. This season, I will be communicating opportunities for WVHL players to volunteer in programs that benefit our community.
I have received two requests for WVHL player volunteers. Please email me ASAP if you are interested and able to support either of the two programs below. I can sign off on Community Service Learning hours if desired.
The Winterhawks have requested volunteers this Sunday, 8/24 to support the Toyota Hockey Family Fun Fest being held in the parking lot of the Winterhawks Skating Center from 1 - 4 PM. We need high school players to help with floor hockey and other activities going on during the festival. The WSC parking lot will have a bounce house, Winterhawks players doing autographs and playing street hockey, food & beverage, and other activities. If you can't be available for the entire time, partial shifts are an option.
The Portland Jr. Winterhawks have asked for WVHL players to help on the ice as Student Coaches working with the Portland Jr. Winterhawks mites (ages 4-8) on Saturday mornings during the monbth of September for the Fall Development Program. There may be ongoing Student Coaching opportunities after September, as well. You would be registered as a USA Hockey Student Coach for this role.
Email me if you are interested in either (or both) volunteer roles. I will be back in touch with details.
