It certainly has been a roller coaster ride with COVID over the past year and a half. Hopefully, we have all seen the worse of it and with the Regions, Covid numbers decreasing and the vaccine numbers increasing CMHA is very hopeful to have a normal or "close" to normal season this year.
We are reaching out to all of you to see if there is interest in being/ or returning as a volunteer within the CMHA organization. CMHA is very appreciative of their volunteers and the time they commit to come out every weekend and teach a group of children or young adults, the joy and excitement which comes with this amazing game of hockey. We are looking for volunteers to step up as Divisional Conveners and Bench Staff members for the 2021-2022 Season. CMHA House League needs Conveners, Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Trainers. An application must be filled out by all potential Conveners and Bench Staff. We have streamlined the process to coincide with other centers and are hoping to have a more efficient way of selecting and keeping records of volunteers within the organization.
If you are unsure of the Certification Requirements, please click on this link and it will take you to the appropriate page on the CMHA website.
Conveners are required to submit a VSC - Vulnerable Sector Check, Respect in Sport Certification, Planning a Safe return to Hockey, and Gender Identity & Expression Course.
Coaching Certifications (for Head Coaches), Trainer certifications, and Respect in Sports cost will be reimbursed if you are an active volunteer for a Division.
Planning a Safe Return to Hockey and the Gender Identity & Expression Course at no charge.
If you are interested can you please fill out the attached application and return it to me via email by August 16th. If you know of someone who would be interested, please forward the application along to them.
Please keep in mind, House League Hockey cannot run without the support of our volunteers who commit their time as Conveners or Bench Staff. With this advance notice, we are hoping to have all positions filled prior to the start of the season to deter any possible delays.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
