Team Parent










Team Parent Responsibilities

Thank you for volunteering your time to help keep your child’s team well organized and compliant with the MAHA rules we are required to comply with.  

  • Try to keep communication current with all team parents so everyone knows what’s going on.
  • Work with your Head Coach to make sure all volunteers have turned in Background Checks & Safe Sports Certificates.  (Safe Sport can be completed for free online thru the USA Hockey website.  It is good for 2 years).  These will be kept in coaches Black Book.
  • Have your parents, who qualify, sign up to work off points at Home Games.
  • Have your parents, who qualify, sign up to be Locker Room Monitors at every practice, home game, and away game.
  • Email your teams list of points worked off weekly to Michelle Santini:

Keep your list too, just in case parents need to see where they are at for working.  Plus, it’s nice to have a backup if someone thinks their points are wrong.

  • Collect Team Jerseys at the end of the season.  Make sure they are clean and in good shape and turn in all at once.
  • Parents are required to work off points.  Each Point equals 1 Hour    
  • Learn to Skate (U8 Blue) = 0 Points                                                                                                                                                  
  • U8 White = 10 Points                                                                                                         
  • U8 Red = 10 Points                                                                                 
  • Squirt = 20 Points                                                                                
  • Peewees = 20 Points                                                                  
  • Bantams = 20 Points

***Points can be worked off at every practice, home game, and away game.  MAHA requires two adults in the locker room whenever there are players in there.  To be a locker room monitor a volunteer has to have a Background Check & Have completed the Safe Sport Program online thru USA Hockey.  Those monitors should be in the locker room 40 minutes prior to practice/game and be in the locker room after practice/game until the last player leaves.  Remember…2 monitors Every Time!

***Points can be worked off during home games.  See list below of what jobs there are.

  • 2 Locker Room Monitors
  • 2 volunteers in Score Booth 
  • 2 volunteers in Penalty Box
  • 50/50 (optional)
  • Sucker Pull (optional)

Your child’s success or lack of success in sports does not indicate what kind of parent you are. But having an athlete that is coachable, respectful, a great teammate, mentally tough, resilient, and tries their best IS a direct reflection of your parenting.
