Did you know that Dakota Curling is a non-profit, volunteer run organization? It takes a lot to run a curling club and we depend on volunteers to run all of our leagues, classes, bonspiels, ice maintenance, cleaning, bartending, and special projects. Can you lend a hand?
Our grass-roots culture helps members feel connected and develops a sense of ownership. If every member volunteered only one hour a month we’d have more than enough help!
All our volunteer opportunities are listed on Signup.Com. Please take a look at what is coming up and add your name where ever you can pitch in.
Ways to Volunteer
Curling Instruction / Mentoring
If you enjoy helping spread your love of curling to new and prospective members, please consider volunteering to help with curling instruction. Most opportunities do not even require that you are a Certified Instructor! You’ll help out during Learnt to Curl Classes, Instructional Leagues, and Community Ed classes and most instruction is done on-ice.
The Club Host is responsible for opening up the club, welcoming players as they arrive for practice or games, answering questions from spectators, monitoring the club room for security, and some light cleaning (empty garbages, wipe down tables). This volunteer role also requires some minimal training and approval by the League Manager, Darcy Ellarby. If you just like to hang out at the club and talk to people about curling this is the perfect volunteer job for you!
While bartending is a volunteer role at Dakota Curling, most bartenders make between $30 and $80 per shift in tips. Bartending requires some minimal training and approval by the bar manager, Paul Ellarby. Bartending is a fun way to get to know your fellow club members! Bartenders must be 21 or older and will also be responsible for closing up the club at the end of the night.
