Volunteer Bond Information

Volunteer Bond Overview


Encourage Association members to become actively involved in the operation and SUCCESS of Southwest Hockey.



Many of our members are unaware of just how much volunteer work and fundraising is necessary to operate a quality hockey program.  The Volunteer Bond Program was introduced in the 2015/2016 season as part of the amalgamation; to encourage members to come forward and help out.

The time commitment is not unreasonable and the help is beneficial and appreciated!!

Participation in the Volunteer Bond Program is a mandatory component of registration with Southwest Hockey and in no way does it exclude families from volunteering with their player’s team.


Value of Bond
