VOLUNTEER BOND INFORMATION
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.
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.
- $350 per family for Community
- $200 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.

The raffle is an important fundraiser for the association. It allows SW to offset ice costs that would otherwise have to be paid through registration fees. By raising money through Casinos and Raffles, the Association can keep fees reasonable and keep fee increases to a minimum, while still providing a quality hockey program for our players.
