For our members who have children that enjoy competing in our many fun races!  Volunteers are always needed to help run our competitions.  It is a great way to get to know the other parents and skaters in our small speed skating community.  We encourage you to think about joining our volunteer pool this year!!

It’s super easy – find a coach and tell them you want to learn one of the positions at the meets OR sign up below. (training provided!) All these events are run by parents who started out with their little ones skating just like you!

MSSA is currently seeking volunteers interested in becoming  a Referee, a Recorder and a E-Timer. We are always looking for new volunteers for all positions. However, the three positions mentioned above are crucial for us to recruit new officials. Without new volunteers interested in these positions we will have to consider bringing officials in from out of province which would considerably add to the cost of our events and result in our event registration fees increasing significantly.

For all positions new volunteers will be trained and mentored. For positions that require course work and certification MSSA will cover the cost.

If you are interested in becoming a Referee, Recorder or E-Timer please reach out to MSSA directly at office@mbspeedskating.ca. Information regarding officials roles and responsibilities can be found here.
