Hockey in this country wouldn’t be what it is without the countless hours volunteered by the same people who are footing the bill each season: the parents. I believe in the philosophy of doing your time at least once during your child’s minor hockey journey. That might mean you strap on the skates and grab a whistle to coach the team, or it could mean you get to wear the manager’s hat for a season. Either way, I believe it’s important to contribute more than just money. (Sorry.)

At least once. And if you coach or manage for multiple seasons? There should be awards in your minor hockey association that get shinier and gaudier with each season you volunteer. Celebrations even. Parades in your honour. A statue maybe?
