Annual Service Requirement

North Branch Hockey Association is an all volunteer run organization. In order for our association to continue to provide the opportunity for our children to play hockey in our community, we need each returning family in our association to volunteer their time. Families can sign up for various volunteer opportunities on our web site through the DIB’s process. The service timeline runs April 1 - March 31.   Any returning family that has not fulfilled their service requirements of at least 4 credits by April 1 will be charged a $50 per credit late fee at the end of the season.

Below is an example of events that will fulfill the service requirement. These events are important as they are raising funds to keep the cost of hockey as affordable as possible, raising funds for the Stacy Sports Complex and recruiting and retaining skaters.  These events will be posted in Dibs at where you will be able to sign up for an event, request credit for volunteering after an event is complete, and check the number of credits completed.  Detailed information on each volunteer opportunity including contact information for the person in charge of an event is posted in Dibs. As new events arise throughout the year, they will be posted in email blasts and on the website.
