Work hours accumulate May through April each season. Work hours not completed will be billed at $30 per hour at the end of April and must be paid before the start of the next season or your child will not be allowed on the ice. Please see exceptions in each below work hour category that pertain to families with more than one child registered in youth hockey. You may donate hours worked to another family, but this must be noted on the sign in/sign out sheet.
Mandatory Work Hours: (see chart below for amount of hours per family based on level and # of skaters) must be worked doing glass cleaning, rink set up, board take down and maintenance, home tournaments (other than your child’s), board of director sub-committee, etc.
Hockey Unlimited Work Hours: 4 hours at our Waupun Hockey Unlimited (HU) Fundraiser event typically held in October. Families are required to work the event, solicit or contribute an auction item valued at $75 or more.
Special Event Hours: 4 of the mandatory work hours must be at one of the special events; Volksfest, Playdowns or State Tournament when hosting.
Helping out with time clock, score sheet, penalty box during your child’s game does not count towards these hours. All parents are expected to take turns helping in those areas during their child’s game.
Recording of Work Hours
Each family will have a log sheet to record their work hours. These sheets will be kept in a binder in the downstairs office.
When recording your hours, please print them legibly in the volunteer hours book located in the office. If the hours cannot be read, they will not be credited.
Each family is responsible for scheduling their own work hours. Opportunities for work hours are usually posted on our website or will be sent out via email.
It is the responsibility of each family to have a current email address on record with the registrar.
**A Board member should verify and initial your sign in/out sheet to be credited the hours worked.
