Volunteers are an essential part of the organization. Behind every hockey game, there is an entire team of volunteers, an extension of the Trail Smoke Eaters family. Whether you see them or not, they are there working tirelessly, helping to keep our organization in motion, ensuring the best game-night experience for our fans. Our Trail Smoke Eaters volunteer family is big, and we are so blessed and forever grateful for each and every one of these amazing individuals.
There are a variety of volunteer positions available. If you like cooking, there is the Spud Shack that supplies burgers, fries, hot dogs and chicken fingers. If you have Serving It Right, there is the Sud Shack where you deal with drinks, usually of the adult variety.
The snack shop is always looking for volunteers to help with snacks, soft drinks, and popcorn. Ticket, program and souvenir sellers and various other game night operation positions such as goal judges and 50/50 vendors are available as well.
Benefits of helping out
All of the volunteers choose to help for many reasons, whether they have a deep tie with the franchise running through the generations of their families, or just feel like giving back to a meaningful part of their lives.
There are many benefits to volunteering. Supporting the development of junior hockey in the community. Being involved with a well-loved sporting experience, learning new skills and work experience, meeting and working with other amazing people, and invitations to volunteer appreciation and other relevant events. The volunteers make a difference to the organization, the sport, and the community.
The Smoke Eaters, like every junior hockey franchise, are always looking for individuals who would like to volunteer and be a part of their family.
