How can I help my team?

Every team needs someone responsible for The Book. In the book is all the paperwork related to the team: roster, calendar, game sheets, logs, consent forms, etc. This is usually held by the head coach, or the manager if the team has one. The Book must accompany the team to every on-ice event, home or away, during the season. Usually the head coach or manager takes care of scheduling games and keeping the team informed via email. Keeping up a website, printing game labels, coordinating tournaments/parties and fundraising are other jobs that can be done by a coach, manager or volunteer parent. Running the score box is the responsibility of the home team and is an excellent way to volunteer to help the team. Experienced managers are always available to help mentor and all managers can contact the Registrars with questions. Please let your head coach know if you would like to help.

Parent Volunteer Requirements

Any parent that will be assisting their team with score keeping or volunteering as a locker room monitor must follow these steps in order to comply with regulations.

  • Apply for a USA hockey number.  This is free for volunteers and must be done annually.  Please email a copy to your team's Manager.
  • Complete a background check through MAHA every two years.  There is a $10.00 fee for this service.  You must then email a copy of the receipt for payment to your team's Manager.
  • Complete a Safesport Training module through USA hockey.  This is free and valid for two years.

While this process may seem lengthy, the CHA's highest priority is the safety and well being of its players.
