Our team is working diligently this fall and winter to ensure we provide the best experience possible for our guests and our Team. Volunteers are incredibly important to our operations and we are excited to see volunteers on campus once again.

Due to the nature of our available roles, we are currently focused on recruiting volunteers 18 years of age and older to support our Welcome Team. The Welcome Team greets guests, answers questions, and ensures guests are following the COVID-19 protocols for our facilities. Shifts are evenings and weekends, with the occasional weekday shift available. Further details and the application form can be found by selecting the Available Positions link below.

All youth volunteer positions (under 18) have been filled. Please contact volunteers@winsport.ca if you have any questions. Community members under 18 years of age who are interested in volunteering at WinSport should check our website in March, as we anticipate starting volunteer recruitment for our summer operations at that time.
