Here are some volunteer positions we’d like to fill. If you have the skills and the time, we will be very grateful for what you are able to contribute.

Positions


The Grindstone team is comprised of a diverse group of people committed to giving back to our hockey community. Our volunteer members are the driving force behind all the work we do. Our individual leadership and collective efforts result in the success we have today. The Grindstone Award would like to extend its thanks to all of our members for the important work they do!

Writers


We always need skilled writers to keep up with our communications. Topics would include our current events, previous events, creation of personal accounts.

If you have experience writing for the web, blogging, creating e-newsletters or guest editing we would like to hear from you.

This is a creative position with minimal boundaries. Example: We would like to take our Go Pro and create an amazingly awesome video of our 1st Annual Charity Tournament! Fun right?

If you are a skilled photographer or videographer, or even just an amateur, with the equipment to capture and edit images/video – we would love to hear from you.
