VOLUNTEERS WELCOME AND NEEDED!

The provincial O-Cup Series is an exciting series across all age groups.  In order to maintain high quality events in a sustainable way year-to-year, Ontario must rely heavily on well-trained volunteers.  A big part of sustaining excellence is sharing experience from one ski club to another or from one region to another.  The LSDA ROC welcomes volunteers from all Divisions to be an integral part of the O-CUP experience for our athletes.  Many parents travelling to the event with their children have volunteer and/or officials experience.
