Mahtomedi Youth Hockey Association is a nonprofit organization operated by volunteers and depends on the assistance of its members to function as a successful organization. It is critical that we all share in the commitment to produce a program that operates efficiently at the lowest cost possible. The goal of the volunteer program is to distribute the workload amount all the MYHA families.
Volunteer hours are NOT transferable from family to family. Running the clock, scorebook, scoreboard, penalty box during a non-tournament game, scrimmage, end of the year play offs or in-house jamborees do NOT satisfy the volunteer requirements. These are team related activities. Each family is obligated to share in the performance of these duties.
Volunteer Sign Up – sign up for most volunteer hours are available online through the DIBS system. You will be notified via club wide email or it will be posted on the DIBS Webpage when opportunities are available throughout the season.
Tryouts – You CANNOT volunteer for any tryout shift for a level that your player is skating participating in. For example, squirt parents cannot volunteer for squirt tryouts on or off the ice (check in, jersey hand out, locker room attendant etc.…)
Accountability – Once you have signed up for a shift you are responsible for that time slot. Please do not sign up for a shift until you are sure the date and time will work for you.
Required Hours – Families are required to volunteer for 8 hours for each Mite 3, 2nd year U8, Squirt, U10, PeeWee, U12, Bantam, and U15 player. Please note that this is not an increase over previous years. In the past we required 4 Dibs credits, but 1 credit equalled 2 hours of volunteer work. This year we have tried to eliminate confusion by having 1 credit equal 1 hour of work. Intros, Mini Mite, Mite 1, Mite 2, 1st year U8’s, and Jr Gold players are exempt from the volunteer requirement.
If you would prefer to not have your family called upon for any volunteer hours a buyout option is available. The buyout option requires a payment of $250 per player.
Volunteer opportunities must be completed by April 1st. A $250 future payment will be set up at the time of registration. If the volunteer hours are not met, that payment will be processed on 4/15/2019.
