PLEASE CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING IN CMHA
It takes many Volunteers in numerous capacities to operate your Association and our volunteer pool seems to be rapidly dwindling. We are a community sports organization and we rely on the community of volunteers to keep the puck moving. Just like on our teams, it requires all of us to work together for success.
Please consider how you can contribute next season. Even if you cannot commit to one of the key posted positions there is always help needed.
Here are just a few of the ways you can contribute to your Association:
Coaches – please contact our Coach Coordinator – email@example.com
Equipment – the Equipment Manager can always use assistance with the equipment delivery at the beginning of the season and equipment return at season’s end. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Fundraising – the Parent Auxiliary is always in need of volunteers to help organize fundraising for the Association – such as our annual CMHA dance Please contact email@example.com
Pre-Season – your Coordinator can always use help with residency and equipment checks at evaluation times. Please contact your Coordinator to see how you can help
Mentors – your Association can always use mentors to help with the younger divisions – this is also a great opportunity for our Midget players to get some of their volunteer hours they require for graduation – we can also always use help training new team officials on clock and game sheet procedures.
