ICH Volunteer Policy

Iowa City-Coralville Hockey Association is an organization run by its volunteers including Board Members, coaches, coordinators, tournament volunteers, and many others. Volunteers are absolutely essential to maintaining and growing ICH. Players reap the rewards of an exceptional hockey program by playing with ICH. As such, the more volunteers ICH has, the better the organization becomes.

This policy sets forth the volunteer requirements for hockey families by age group.
