Volunteers – FAQ
Without volunteers like you, the 2023 Memorial Cup presented by Kia would be just a pipe dream instead of a reality. You and the rest of the volunteers in our great province are one of the main reasons that Kamloops was chosen for this momentous occasion – 103 years of hockey!
As a volunteer, you’ll receive a great uniform and an invitation to the volunteer appreciation event, but you’ll really receive so much more… meet new people from across the country, make new friends and have the chance to be at the center of the action!
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com! The volunteer organizing committee is monitoring all emails and will respond to you within 24 hours.
- How can I register?
We ask volunteers to have a valid email in order to create their profile. Volunteers will be required to complete an online Volunteer Profile. We will use email to communicate with all volunteers. To complete your profile, you will need an email address. Remember: you may want to adjust your privacy settings on your email account so that the emails we send you don’t go into your junk folder! Most emails will be coming from firstname.lastname@example.org so be sure to put it in your “safe” list! Please don’t ‘unsubscribe’ or you will miss out on important information sharing and newsletters. Mark the page as one of your favorites for easy return.
- Is there a minimum number of hours to commit to volunteering?
Yes, we’re asking that all volunteers commit to a minimum of 16 hours.
- Is there a minimum age to volunteer?
Yes, all volunteers must be 16 years of age by May 25, 2023. Please note, there may be some volunteer positions which will require volunteers to be 19 years of age (i.e., working with alcohol, driving). Some exceptions may be made to this, please contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
