Please take some time to read the list over, think about it, and then fill in our Volunteer Form below in which you can indicate the areas you’d be interested in helping out. Please remember that we will try to put you into the area(s) you select, but hope that you will be understanding and flexible if we need to ask you to help in another area instead.

*note* – We ask that you fill in the Volunteer Form once for each full spot you are volunteering for.  So if you have 2 people in your household who will be volunteering for 2 roles, please fill out the form once for each volunteer.  However, if you are going to be “sharing” a role amongst several people (e.g. maybe a timekeeper role where one person is doing Thu-Fri and your spouse is doing Sat) then only fill on the form once.  This is to ensure that we get an accurate count of which roles are filled.

THANK-YOU from the bottom of out hearts for being a part of bringing this tournament to Ottawa and providing such an amazing hockey opportunity for special teams from around the world!
Sincerely,
The Capital City Condors

*note – to fill in the form multiple times in a sitting, please go here after each successful submission.  Don’t hit “refresh”, please.
