SMMHA Fundraising Bond

The Volunteer Bond was instituted many years ago in an effort to ensure that all St. Marys Minor Hockey Association fundraising events are adequately staffed. The SMMHA registration fees cover ice use expenses and insurance. All other expenditures have to be financed through fundraising efforts. The bond ensures that every family contributes to maintaining registration fees as low as possible.

The parents or guardians of each minor hockey player are asked to perform their bond assignment. Families can appoint some other responsible adult to perform their volunteer duties as long as the Bond Coordinator is notified in advance. A player’s older sibling can complete a bond shift, siblings must be 14 years or older. 

Rostered coaching staff received by the bond coordinator from OMHA and OWHA rep. will count as a bond for that child they are coaching. Only those names given to the bond coordinator are exempt. All other Parents are required to complete a Fundraising bond shift at any SMMHA fundraising event during the year. 

*Parents will do 1 bond shift per season if you have 1 child in SMMHA. 1 cheque dated Mar.31, 2020 will be collected at your team/age group parent meeting.(you will be notified when this meeting will be held.) 

*Parents will do 2 bond shifts per season if you have 2 or more children in SMMHA. 2 separate cheques each dated Mar. 31, 2020 will be collected at team/age group meetings. (you will be notified when these meetings will be held)
