Making EYH The Best It Can Be!
In non-profit sports organizations, the membership must make financial and time contributions for the association to succeed. The financial contribution is achieved through registration fees and fundraising. The time contribution is achieved through required volunteer credits. With the hard work and dedication of all the associations' members, Everest Youth Hockey will continue to grow and ensure hockey is enjoyed by all participants.
To ensure that the association continues to function as a non-profit organization that strives to improve & increase the opportunities for families to participate in hockey. The following will be the associations guideline:
- Each family is responsible to work up to 20 hours.
- Volunteers must be 14 years of age or older to be eligible to work.
- Families with skaters only in the Intro to Hockey program are not required to but are encouraged
- Hours can be earned from April 1st through March 31st annually.
Volunteer hours must be completed or scheduled to be completed by the WAHA Play Down weekend (early February). A $50 per hour fee will be enforced for any hours not completed or scheduled by play downs. If neither of these is met by play downs, then the skater(s) will not be allowed on the ice for play downs or any game afterwards until requirements are met.
It is the responsibility of individual volunteers to claim volunteer sessions on the Everest Youth Hockey website. This is the only way to ensure that your hours will be credited. Volunteer hours will be tabulated throughout the season by the Volunteer Coordinator.
Exceptions to the volunteer policy may only be approved by the Volunteer Coordinator. The table below will detail specifically the hours and exemptions for the positions within the association. If a family joins the association later in the season, their required volunteer hours may be reduced.
