Volunteers needed for international event

Volunteers are needed for an international hockey tournament coming to Langley this November.

The Langley Events Centre will host the World Junior A Challenge from Nov. 7-13, with athletes beginning to arrive in late October.

Individuals are needed to work as team hosts, ticket sellers, concession workers, media runners, game presentation assistants, scorekeepers, statisticians and more.

The six-team event features two Canadian squads — Team West and Team East — as well as entries from the United States, Sweden, Russian and the Czech Republic.

“If you’re into hockey or even if you just have experience organizing large events, your skills will be of great value to this tournament,” said event communications chair Brent Mutis. “It’s a super way to build up your resume while being part of a high-profile event that will get national media coverage and feature some highly talented, draft-eligible hockey players.”

Volunteers will receive a tournament ticket package, meals, apparel and other goodies for lending a hand at the World Junior A Challenge.

For more details or to sign up, email volunteer@langleyeventscentre.com.
