2017 Canadian Blind Sports National Goalball Championships - Volunteers Needed

BC Blind Sports is pleased to host the 2017 Canadian Blind Sports National Goalball Championships and we need volunteers! The Championships are April 21st– 23rd, in New Westminster, BC.

Help welcome the top Goalball players from across Canada as they bring their best to the lower-mainland and compete in both men’s and women’s divisions to try to bring home the National title.

What is Goalball anyway? Well it’s a fast-paced, highly entertaining, team sport invented for and played by athletes who are blind or visually impaired.

This is your chance to volunteer at a National Paralympic sporting event! We need volunteers to help with set up and take down, greeters, food and beverage attendants, table officials to help run the games by either operating a time and score clock, recording shots or acting as a goal judge. All necessary training will be provided prior to the event and you get to be up front and involved in the action.

What you can expect as a volunteer:

  • Confirmation of volunteer hours
  • Sincere gratitude from tournament organizers, athletes, and attendees
  • Meet other amazing volunteers and athletes
  • Watch some high-level goalball competition

The event runs from 4 pm to 9 pm on Friday April 21st from 8 am to 9 pm on Saturday the 22nd. and 8am to 4pm on Sunday at New Westminster Secondary School 835 - 8th Street, New Westminster.

Please contact Susan at susan@bcblindsports.bc.ca or call 604-325-8638 to find out more on how to get involved.
