In lieu of other fundraising initiatives (such as selling items), SHMHA endeavors to host several tournaments throughout the course of the season. Funds raised from these tournaments help keep our registration fees down from season to season.
The participation of all families is a major contributor to that success.
One shift during a tournament is mandatory for each registered player in U7 and above. Parents/Guardians will be able to sign up for positions and dates of their choosing on a first come, first serve basis in October 2023. Shift lengths will vary from 4-7 hours and duties will be similar to previous years (set up, arena helper, scorekeeper, timekeeper, registration desk).
Once initial selections of date and duties have been made and the individual tournament schedule finalized (generally 14 days ahead of tournament start), specific time slots will be announced and selected via the volunteer tab at southhuronminorhockey.ca
Further information will follow in the fall of 2023 and will be located under the Volunteer tab on the website.
Each team will also be responsible for the following throughout the season:
a)time keeping for all home games
b) score keeping for all home games
c)sweater washing for the season
***Please note that the person fulfilling the participatory hours will need to be 18 years of age with the exception of U18 aged players who may complete their own shift on the TIME CLOCK ONLY****
A bond cheque of $500 dated December 1, 2023 will be collected for all registered players. These will be collected by bench staff and submitted at the beginning of the season. If the Opt-out option below is selected, a bond cheque will not be needed.
Volunteer Opt Out
Families may choose to Opt-out of completing a participatory shift at the time of registration by selecting the Opt-out fee of $200 online. This option is only available at the time of player registration and must be paid by the August 1st registration payment deadline. Families with multiple children can make this selection individually for each player (for example-2 kids – 1 opt out at $200, plus 1 shift for the other).
