LRA Volunteer Information
It’s the time, resources and energy of our volunteers that makes LRA successful as a non-profit organization.
Questions about volunteering? Contact John at firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to sustain our success LRA requires that a parent/guardian of a player or player if over the age of 18, must complete 2 volunteer shifts of approximately 5 hours per shift on Association-related volunteer activities per player per season.
The LRA Board of Directors is responsible to identify and define what constitutes Association-related volunteer activities. Volunteer opportunities will be available throughout the year for parents/guardians of players and payers over the age of 18 to fulfil their hours. The Directors of Fundraising and Tournaments will keep track of those parents/guardians of players and players over the age of 18 who volunteer their time to the Association.
Association-Related Volunteer Activities
- Working a 5 hour bingo shift (winnersbingo.ca 3307 3rd Ave. South, Lethbridge)

- If so designated by the LRA, 5-hour shifts at the Bridge Battle Tournament or any Provincial Competitions hosted by the LRA; or
