VOLUNTEER COMMITMENTS

Volunteer commitments are compulsory at Glenlake Minor Hockey Club; the number of volunteer commitments is determined by the category in which each player plays:

VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT CHEQUES

We rely on volunteers to run our hockey program. These volunteers include Coaches, Team Managers, Evaluators, Board Members, Bingo/Casino workers and General Volunteers. The volunteer commitment is determined by the category in which each player plays. Refer to the Volunteer Commitment Policy for the number of commitments required and the volunteer commitment opportunities.

Volunteer Commitment cheques will be collected at your child’s first evaluation. ALL parents must bring one post-dated cheque for $250 for each player commitment. The first cheque should be dated December 15, 2018 and the subsequent cheque should be dated for February 15, 2019. The cheques will be destroyed (or returned if requested) once the volunteer commitments have been completed or will be cashed should the commitment(s) not be fulfilled. Remember no volunteer cheques at the first evaluation/ice session will mean no evaluation/ice time for your kid(s)!
POST-DATED VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT CHEQUES

 Volunteer commitment cheques for $250 per commitment required at your child’s first evaluation or first ice time.

 

Remember to bring your commitment cheques to the first evaluation session

 No volunteer commitment cheques   = no ice time!
