Volunteer Policy


The success of Cochrane Minor Basketball relies on the dedicated commitment of volunteers all of whom work for the benefit of our players and the community-at-large.
 
In an effort to garner volunteer assistance, thereby making a basketball season possible and more enjoyable for everyone, Cochrane Minor Basketball requires all parents to volunteer time to help ensure an efficient and enjoyable basketball experience.
 
You will be required to submit a $150.00 cheque at the time of registration, which will be destroyed upon completion of your volunteer commitment.  Only one volunteer deposit per family is required.  Notwithstanding time and score keeping commitments referenced below, for those of you who prefer to make a donation of $150.00 in lieu of volunteering, you may do so and date the cheque for October 1 of the current year.
 
 A family is expected to volunteer a minimum of 4 hours per season.  The time that you volunteer will be monitored by the Team Manager and will be reported to the administrative coordinator at the end of the season.   If you are a Board Member, League Equipment Manager, Coach, Co-Coach, Assistant Coach or Team Manager you will automatically complete your volunteer commitment as these positions are for the full year and will exceed the 4 hour requirement.

Volunteer Deposit cheque must be submitted during registration, your childs registration will not be considered complete until deposit cheque is received.  ** NO VOLUNTEER DEPOSIT CHEQUES WILL BE ACCEPTED AT EVALUATIONS**
 
Positions that may be available for the season are as follows:
 

  • Board Member
  • League Equipment Manager
  • Evaluations
  • Coach, Co-Coach, Assistant Coach
  • Team Manager
  • Casino (Cochrane Minor Basketball Association)
  • Casino (Calgary Minor Basketball Association)
  • Provincials (Calgary Minor Basketball Association)
  • Storing/Transport of Equipment Trailer
  • Board Directed Committee Member (e.g. Coach Development Committee, Player Development Committee, Promotions Committee, Evaluation Committee, Equipment/Uniform Merchandiser Committee)

 
Time and score keeping is required of all members of a team as a necessary part of league operations.  It does not count towards your volunteer hours.  Coaches and Managers of teams are obviously not included in the rotation, but each player's family outside of those members must take their turn time or score keeping.
