URGENT – Seeking WORA Tournament Coordinator(s)

WORA is looking for a tournament coordinator
(or a team of coordinators) to manage WORA’s annual tournament.

Our Association is required to confirm now if we will commit to hosting
an annual tournament again during this coming ringette season.

As you may be aware, after many years of amazing service to WORA, our tournament coordinators are retiring. As such, we are looking for someone (or a team of people) to take on this role for the coming season.

Our ability to host the event is dependent on finding a coordinator.
