The Volunteer Corner is the place for all club members to get information on our volunteer programs. Without volunteers we would not be able to keep the club going as we know it. If you are able to volunteer please email Susan. Thank you for all your hard work!
Volunteer Opportunities and Sign Up:
Below you will find a link to our online volunteer scheduling system. You can use the calendar to find and sign up for upcoming events. Some are already full and some I still need volunteers for.
Please note the calendar only displays events for the next 90 days. There will be many more events though out the year.
You do not need to fill out the volunteer hours reporting forms the lead at the event will email me to let me know if you completed your hours.

Questions and Answers
Why a Volunteer Program?
The continued success of MHC is dependent on the volunteer efforts of its members. The program is not a way to increase fees but to increase volunteers to maintain our fee structure and the quality of the club.
All MHC families with a skater at the Mini-Mite, Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee, or Bantam levels are required to fulfill a 4 hour volunteer commitment.
I have more than one child with MHC; Do I need to volunteer 4 hours for each child?
NO, the 4 hour requirement is per family regardless of the number of skaters.
What is required to earn 4 volunteer hours?
Sign up at evaluations or throughout the season for various events that need volunteers. Here are a few ways to fulfill your commitment. Volunteering as a Head Coach or Coordinator, help with Evaluations, Picture Day, End of Season Playoffs, Ice Blast Tournament, Shark Dance, Clinics throughout the season, Golf Tournament, etc. or any Approved MHC Activities.

The MHC website will have a listing of volunteer opportunities or you can contact the volunteer director at firstname.lastname@example.org

No, you can fulfill your requirement by working for an hour or two at a time or you can work all at one event.
How do I report the hours I have worked?
After performing your volunteer assignment, complete a “Volunteer Hours Reporting Form”. This form is available on the website or you can email the volunteer director. The Event Coordinator and your Team Coordinator will also have copies. This form must be signed by the event coordinator or a MHC Board member. Please have your Team Coordinator put the form in the Volunteer Director folder in the locker.
