The strength of any organization is based on the commitment of it's volunteers. Like any other minor sport organization, Foothills Minor Hockey Association is always seeking volunteers to run it's many programs. Volunteer opportunities range from serving on the Board of Directors, sponsorship, and helping out at our local events.
*NEW* for the 2017/2018 Season- Become a Member of a Committee
It is at the committee level where the new ideas for the organization originate. Each committee is represented by a board member who takes forward the recommendations of his/her committee. Committees are made up of members of the Board of Directors and interest members of the Foothills Minor Hockey community.
Below are the Committees we will be implementing for the upcoming season (subject to enough volunteers). We hope to have these committees each season.
Special Events- During the course of the year, Foothills Minor Hockey has the opportunity for several events. We are looking for passionate individuals with event planning expertise and enthusiasm whom are willing to share their time and ideas to help bring our hockey community together. These could possibly include, an open house, gear swap, Little Britches Parade, guest speaker, community events, etc.
Hockey Development- During the course of the year we are looking for ideas and opportunities for our kids and coaches to advance their skills through Hockey Alberta courses, goalie clinics, and our FMHA general clinics, etc.
Sponsorship- Without the generous assistance of our sponsors we simply wouldn't be able to run our program. We are looking for members of our association to help explore funding opportunities and more importantly ensure we are taking care of them and thanking them for their generosity.
Officiating- Referees are an important part of the game and our association needs to support our players who decide to take their skills in a new direction. The committee can work together with the Board to provide support throughout the year to all officials by providing resources to enhance their skills and help communicate with the association.
Bylaw and Rules & Regs Committee- As the association is always changing, we are always trying to do things better. We are looking for individuals to be a part of the committee that will help make recommendations and review changes. The FMHA bylaws can only be changed and voted on at the AGM.
