The benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and our hockey community.
- Volunteering can introduce you to new people.
- Can learn new skills or enhance your current skills.
- Our children will see how volunteering can make a difference.
- It can feel great to help others. You are supporting an activity that your child loves.
Remember: If you don’t see an opportunity that you are currently familiar with, please consider trying a ‘new' activity. You may just find a new passion through trying something new!!
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 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 reasonable and the help is beneficial and appreciated!!
Participation in this program is mandatory of registration with SW and in no way does it exclude families from volunteering with their player’s team.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Volunteer Bond commitment is to the Association. Parents still have an obligation to their kids' team(s) to support & ensure their team(s) have sufficient volunteer coverage throughout the season. Although the Volunteer Bond component may be completed, parents MUST STILL actively participate at the team level ensuring that the workload is shared.
Value of Bond
It is EACH FAMILY’S OWN responsibility to ensure they meet the program commitment and to ensure they report their credits to the Director of Volunteers.
- $500 per family for Community
- $350 per family for House League
If you have a child playing in both the Community Program and House League Program, you MUST fulfill the Volunteer Bond requirements for the Community Program.
