Volunteers matter. Without our AMAZING volunteers, the Olympic Oval would not be able to put on world-class competitions like we do. One of the more well-known benefits of volunteering is the impact on the speed skating community. Volunteering allows you to connect to the sport and make it a better experience for all. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.
