NL Winter Games Volunteers

The new season has just started but we have a lot to do in preparation for the Newfoundland and Labrador Winter Games to be held in Deer Lake in March 2018. If you are interested in any of the following roles, please let us know as soon as possible at

Of greatest urgency, is that we need a volunteer in each region to conduct a Regional Play-down and select a Regional team. It is essential that these play-downs be completed by January 31, 2018. A list of regions can be found at

Secondly, all Regional team coaches are required to have a coaching certification equivalent to Competition Introduction (trained). Training will be arranged in two locations subject to demand. Please identify your needs by October 1, 2017.

If you aren’t sure of your certification, contact the Coaching Association of Canada at or access The Locker at

We would also like to have a good number of certified umpires to oversee the matches. If you are already an umpire and are interested in participating, or if you are interested but need training, let us know by October 31, 2017 at

If you are in the Deer Lake area, there is a requirement for a Convenor for the badminton event, as well as a coach for the host team. If interested in either role, contact Brad Romaine at

Happy shuttling.
