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.

Volunteer services include, but are not limited to, board membership, team management, locker room monitoring, set up / take
down mite ice dividers, home game and tournament volunteering such as clock, score sheet, penalty box, information services,
raffle area, and other volunteer services that have been approved and benefit ICH.

It is the expectation that every parent/guardian will volunteer throughout the season. Team managers will identify opportunities, communicate team requirements for volunteering, and track volunteer hours for each team. 

Volunteer Registration, Consent to Screen & SafeSport Training

All volunteers are required to register with USA Hockey for the current season, complete an annual background check and complete SafeSport online training.  

SafeSport training must be completed prior to the season start and before any on-ice or off-ice contact with players.
