CanSkate Coordinators Are Needed!
Coordinators are the volunteers at the boards who help assist the coaches.
They help pass out information, get the skaters on and off the ice, keep progress cards up to date, hand out badges, answer questions, encourage fundraising and promote the Program.
If you are interested please let an Executive member or Coach know.
(You can pair up with a friend as well.)  Thanks!
