Volunteering (South Huron Minor Hockey)


Participatory Commitment

SHMHA hosts 4 very successful tournaments each season and the participation of all families is a major contributor to that success. These tournaments allow us to help fund our programming without any additional fundraising throughout the season.

NEW for the 2021-2022 season, we will be offering the option to opt out of a volunteer shift for a $250 fee (per participant). Families with multiple children can make this selection individually for each player (for example - 2 kids - 1 opt out at $250, plus 1 shift for the other). ****This option will only be available to be selected prior to the start of the season and payment must be made in full on October 1, 2021 with registration.****

A bond cheque in the amount of $500 and dated Dec 1, 2021 will be required for each registered player unless the opt out option has been selected. These cheques will be collected at the first skate for each player along with registration cheques.

Cheques will NOT be cashed unless hours are not completed.

Participatory hours are for the benefit of the players within South Huron Minor Hockey. 

One shift will need to be completed for EVERY child registered within SHMHA. We will be maintaining the structure from the past 3 seasons for 2021-2022.  Parents/Guardians will be able to sign up for positions and dates of their choosing on a first come, first serve basis in October 2021.  Shift lengths will vary from 4-6 hours and duties will be similar to previous years (set up, arena helper, registration desk, scorekeeper, timekeeper). The scheduled times for these shifts will not selected until a tournament schedule is completed which is usually 1-2 weeks ahead of the tournament.

Parents who wish to do so, may create an account on the sign up genius website in advance of the initial shift selection. This can be done at:


Once initial selections have been made and the individual tournament schedule finalized, specific time slots will be announced and selected via the volunteer tab at southhuronminorhockey.ca

Additional changes may be made prior to the start of the season by recommendations made through the association survey. Updated information will be posted under the Volunteer tab at southhuronminorhockey.ca

Further information will follow at the beginning of the 2021-2022 season.


Each team will ALSO be responsible for the following throughout the season (which are not included in your volunteer requirements):


a) Time keeping for all home games,  b) Score keepers for all home games,  c) Sweater washing for entire season, d) Collecting Gate Fees (boys)


**The person who is working must be 18 years or older with the exception of some timekeeper positions which may be Midget level registered players**
