BYHA Volunteer Requirments

2019-2020 Volunteer Hours

Please use this link to track your current total volunteer hours for the season.

Volunteer Requirements

Current for 2021-2022 Season:

BYHA operates with support from volunteers.  In order to guarantee that we are able to provide our youth with a great hockey season, we need parents to volunteer their time at a variety of events that our association organizes throughout the year (open skate, tournaments, gun raffle, cleaning, high school games, men’s tournament, pancake breakfast, gun show…).  Each family is required to volunteer during the season and in the following off-season.  For the most part, families can choose how they want to volunteer. We will be asking for a deposit on your volunteer hours for the hockey season and a check for the off-season.  If the volunteer hours requirements are not met, then BYHA will deposit your check(s). Volunteer hours requirements are determined by the oldest child registered with BYHA for multiple children (you do not need to add hours up for every child registered). You are responsible for filling out your volunteer hours form and depositing in the collection box.  Each family is to work at least 5 tournament hours between the girls’ tournament or the two junior gold tournaments (assigned to teams), these hours do not count toward the winter volunteer hour minimum requirements.  Each team is also required to sell gun raffle tickets throughout the season.

It will not be uncommon for you to put in more than your required hours.  These are minimum requirements, not maximums.

Meat Raffle Requirements:

Every 1st and 3rd Saturday, Whitetail Wilderness hosts a meat raffle sponsored by BYHA.  We provide the meat and workers for the meat raffle.  It entails picking up money bags and meat from the rink, running the meat raffle at Whitetail, which starts at 6:30, and dropping the money bags back off at the rink.  It typically runs about 1-1/2 hours.  Here is a list of the required number of meat raffles each family is required to do for both winter and summer months (based on the highest level of skater registered with BYHA):

Winter (Nov 1-Apr 30):

Every Level: 1 Meat Raffle

Summer (May 1-Oct 31):
