Volunteers Lead the Way at 2009 World Juniors
July 10, 2008

The countdown is on: only six months until the first puck drops for the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championship. Ten teams from across the globe will meet in Ottawa to play for a chance to take home international gold.

While the schedule is set, it’s the close to 2,000 volunteers that will make the difference behind the scenes, showing not only the athletes but the world that Ottawa is a true hockey city. The Volunteer Division is extremely proud to have so many people offering their time to be part of the team, representing your city and your country as Ottawa hosts its first ever IIHF World Junior Championship.

Last month the Volunteer Management System was launched, making it even easier for 2009 IIHF World Junior Championship volunteers to keep their information updated! Have you updated your information?

What do I need to volunteer?

Volunteering for the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championship will be an exciting and rewarding experience.
You will also need the following:

• A Police Record Check (PRC). You must have your PRC issued after . To get a free PRC issued by the Ottawa Police, be sure to take a copy of your letter of authorization issued by the 2009 IIHF World Junior Championship.

• References. When you signed up to be a volunteer, you provided a list of references. You need to ensure that you give 2009 IIHF WJC staff and members of the Volunteer Division permission to contact your references. You can check “Yes” for the Reference Waiver on the main page of the Volunteer Management System.

• Some positions may require additional information. Any information about these positions and requirements will be posted to the “Bulletins” section of the Volunteer Management System. Check back often by logging in and clicking “View My Bulletins.”
