Volunteers are the lifeblood of any non-profit organization and youth hockey provides multiple opportunities to volunteer.
The Tri-City Youth Ice Hockey Association is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide access to the sport of ice hockey to the area youth. Without volunteers TYIHA would not be able to accomplish this goal. Every parent is expected to volunteer in some capacity. For those who have knowledge of the game, please consider coaching or refereeing. Please volunteer your time to help our organization support our youth in the game we all love.
There are many ways to volunteer
Here are a few of them:
- Locker Room Monitor
- Tunnel/Girls’ Locker Room Monitor
- Hanging Sponsor Banners
- Time Keeper
- Score Keeper
- Storm Raffle Table
- Equipment (gathering and organizing)
- Penalty Box
In order to avoid having to pay the volunteer fee, at least one member of your family must register as a volunteer and fulfill the volunteer requirements.
In order to ensure that everyone has enough time to complete their duties, at least one family member needs to be registered as a volunteer by October 1. If you do not have it completed by that date, you will be charged 50% of the volunteer fee. At the end of the season in March, if the requirements have not been met the unpaid balance of the volunteer fee will be assessed.
The fees below will be assessed if someone from your family has not registered to volunteer, and/or has not completed volunteer requirements by the end of the season.
6U Mini Mite: $100
8U through High School: $250
