Bunny Program 2017-2018 Season Kick Off!

The 2017 – 2018 season is set to kick off. The Bunny program is focused on developing skating ability, introducing ringette skills and having fun. Here is some information for you about our program, further information can be found here: http://www.westottawaringette.com/registration/bunnies/

The season will begin on October 7th at 9am for all Bunnies at GRC A. That day we will be introducing ourselves to the kids and splitting the Bunnies into groups. Groups will be determined by both age and ability.
After the groups have been determined you will be told whether your child’s next ice time will be at 8am or 9am on October 14th.

We Need Volunteers!!!!
The program has been a success in the past because of the great volunteers we get. Please consider being part of the program. You don’t need to know a lot of drills; instructions will be provided for the volunteers. Here are some of the positions we are looking for:

Senior Bunny Coordinator – Communicate with the bunny families about the program, follow the skill development plan with other coaches and on ice helpers.

Senior Manager – this role will handle communications to bunny families around scheduling and social events, as well as be prime with our Junior manager to help organize Bunnyfest and and any other social activities

Coaches – we will have 3-4 groups who need 1-2 coaches who can lead/demonstrate drills and give feedback. No experience or certification necessary.
