Volunteers are what our program is based on and what makes it great.  Without a village of people banding together to help make our program run strong, we wouldn't be the success we are today. There are many ways to fulfill your families volunteer hours - here are a few suggestions:

  • Tryout Helpers (Sept-Oct)
  • Team Managers
  • Coaching Positions
  • S.K.A.T.E. Committee Member
  • BYHA Tournament Helpers

Please check back frequently to find times you can help our program out.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Team parent duties do not count toward volunteer hours, however, it is expected that every family share in these duties for each team you have a player on. Those duties include: locker room monitors, running the clock, penalty box, and keeping the score book.

Volunteer Policy
