Volunteer

If you love slo-pitch as much as we do and want to be more involved, consider joining the SPO Team! For almost 40 years now, SPO has been the slo-pitch organization of choice because of our dedication to the game and those who play it. SPO was established back in November of 1982 to create more awareness of the sport of slo-pitch and to better communicate with its participants throughout Ontario. Decades later, we continue to do that with a faithful and dedicated group of volunteers who share a love of the game and help us to fulfill our Mission to foster and improve the game of slo-pitch.

We are always looking for good people, knowledgeable in the sport, and respected by their peers, to help us administer our programs and services. You'd be joining a team whose core has worked together for over 30 years to help build this game to what it is today! 

Want to be part of our Team and join the SPO Family? Contact Tom Buchan today at tbuchan@slopitch.org, or call him directly at (905) 646-7773.
