“We are now looking to the community to expand our team that will help us host this world-class event,” says John Lee, senior vice-president of the Saskatchewan host organizing committee. “This is an exciting opportunity for volunteers to take part in this prestigious event as our city welcomes the world this December. And we are thrilled to have SaskEnergy on board as the official volunteer sponsor to help recruit our team of volunteers.”

“SaskEnergy’s commitment to volunteers has helped our province showcase many national and world-class events, and this December because of Saskatchewan’s volunteers, we’ll host the best World Junior Hockey Championship ever,” said Christine Tell, Minister of Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sport, on behalf of Ken Cheveldayoff, Minister of Crown Corporations. “While SaskEnergy is supporting the tournament’s volunteers, I know many of the corporation’s employees will be among the first to sign up and donate their time and energy behind the scenes to make this event possible.”

The City of Regina will play host to five European teams, Sweden, Russia, Czech Republic, Finland and Austria, during the Regina 10-game round robin portion of the WJC that begins at the Brandt Centre. Regina will also play host to Team Canada’s selection camp as well as two Team Canada pre-competition games to be announced later.

“We need 1,000 enthusiastic volunteers to help host the 12 games in Regina, “says Dawn Kobayashi, vice-president of volunteers of the Regina host organizing committee. “There are numerous opportunities for volunteers to participate including hosting, transportation, security and more. We know the people of Regina will help put on a first-class show when the puck drops in Regina in December 2009.”

Details on how to become a volunteer, and volunteer application forms, for the 2010 WJC are available online at www.hockeycanada.ca by following the 2010 WJC links to volunteers. Further information on volunteering and potential opportunities is available by calling the 2010 WJC Regina office at 306.775.2010.

Meanwhile, the Saskatoon host organizing committee for the 2010 WJC has also issued a call for 1,500 volunteers in that city. Saskatoon will play host to 21 games including 10 round robin games and 11 relegation round and medal round games beginning and concluding with the gold medal game .
