Join the Sorauren Hosers Volunteer Rink Crew! Volunteers flood the natural ice rink every night at 9 p.m. (weather permitting) during the skating season, typically January and February.

SoraurenHoserslogoNo experience necessary… training and all supplies provided. Sign up using the form below. (Bonus: Once you’re on the list, you’ll get notices for our social events.) Volunteers typically work one night per week, with a crew of two to four people, a mix of veterans and newcomers.

The Sorauren Rink is a natural ice rink built and maintained by volunteer crews, usually on the baseball diamond with two pads, one for shinny and one for pleasure skating.

Because it’s natural ice, the season is dependent on Mother Nature. Crews will flood every night at 9 p.m. as long as it’s cold enough. We typically need three to four nights of consistent below-zero weather to begin flooding. Follow our home page, or follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook at SoraurenPark, for rink updates and status.

Thanks to Toronto Parks, Forestry and Recreation for providing hoses, scrapers and water supply from the Fieldhouse. Thanks to our sponsors for supporting costs including boards, hoses, supplies, signage, volunteer appreciation.
