LITTLE FALLS YOUTH HOCKEY ASSOCIATION 2019-2020 VOLUNTEER & FUNDRAISING POLICY

LFYHA is a non-profit organization that relies heavily on volunteers. We are solely operated by volunteers, therefore the profits from the concession stand and home tournaments directly fund our hockey program. We greatly appreciate the many hours contributed by our hockey families during the season.  To make volunteer work more equitable for the entire association, the board has established a volunteer policy.  This includes families working MANDATORY hours in DIBS and Home Tournaments/Games.

A volunteer deposit of $400 PER FAMILY is required and must be submitted during online registration. NO PLAYER will be allowed on the ice until this is on file with the association. If your family completes the volunteer requirements, your deposit will be cancelled electronically at the end of the season.  Families with incomplete hours will have their volunteer deposit withdrawn on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.

LFYHA implemented an online volunteer system in 2015 called DIBS. The hours have been configured with the best of our ability.  You can use DIBS to view available shifts, sign up (“claim”) and keep track of volunteer shifts. You must be registered for the current season to access the DIBS Volunteer system. More information on DIBS is available on the LFYHA website

Coaches, Managers, Board Members and Locker Room Monitors must have a USA hockey number submitted to the Volunteer Coordinator to verify the completion of requirement items (safe sport, background check and coaching class/on-line class, if applicable).  All requirements must be done prior to a Coach or Locker Room Monitor fulfilling any duties.  Managers and Board Members must have all items completed by November 15, 2019 or the individual will be asked to step down from their position. 

 

The “Volunteer Year” will coincide with the fiscal year, April 1st to March 31st.   Any family may accept 5 donated hours from another family.  There will be NO roll over hours from year to year. 

CONCESSION REQUIRED Hours:

·         When you sign up for concession hours you are committed to working those hours.

·         If you are unable to work a claimed shift, you must cancel 96 hours prior to the start of shift. 

·         If it is within the 96 hours you will need contact the Concession Manager to hire an approved youth worker to fill your shift at a rate of $15.00/hour.  The Concession Manager must receive your payment in full prior to the start of your cancelled shift.

·         All youth workers, 15 years or older, MUST be pre-approved by the Concession Manager. 

·         If you are more than 10 minutes late on three separate occasions, the LFYH board has the option to withdraw your volunteer deposit prior to April 1, 2020.

·         If you are a no show, your deposit will be withdrawn the next business day. 

o   If a returned check occurs, your child will not be able to participate until the volunteer deposit is paid in full.  This policy ensures that the concession hours are covered, and your volunteer deposit is cancelled at the end of the season.

A Buy-Out Option is available for all required DIBS hours at $20/hr.  This must be received no later than December 31, 2019.  NO EXCEPTIONS!  Note: This buy-out is ONLY for DIBS hours and does not include home tournaments or games.

Volunteer and Concession Worker Code of Conduct

·         When you are fulfilling your volunteer or concession hours, we ask that you do not bring children with that require your supervision as it places an extra burden on the others who are working with you.  This action can also pose a safety or health risk.

·         You must also demonstrate good judgement when using personal electronic devices to ensure usage does not inhibit productivity standards and/or job performance.

·         Concession stand workers must be 15 years old.  Individuals must be 18 years old to work a bingo shift.
