– Join Our Cause –
Snider Hockey relies on the involvement and support of volunteers across the Delaware Valley. Volunteer opportunities are available at our six city rinks and the Flyers Skate Zone in Pennsauken, NJ. Volunteers assist our Site Coordinators with many tasks including but not limited to: executing practice plans, working one-on-one with Learn to Play student-athletes, assisting with academic tutoring, homework help, and life skills activities, and serving as a mentor and role model to Snider Hockey students.
