With increasing registration numbers in nearly all its divisions, the Minor Oaks Hockey Association House League program is in need of volunteers for the upcoming season.

If you have any questions, please contact the office. They will be happy to assist you.
Note that ALL MOHA volunteers are required to have a valid police clearance on file. All on ice volunteers must also have Speak Out in addition to the certifications required for their specific role.
Division conveners -- MOHA has openings for division conveners in various levels. The association's revamped MD-Red/White/Blue house league structure has made the divisions smaller, with most having only six teams, making the job of conveners much less daunting. A convener's position provides an honourarium roughly equal to a player registration. MOHA regulations require that a convener be on duty to allow games to be played.
Coaches -- MOHA has openings for coaches, trainers and managers in various age groups and levels MD-Red, White & Blue. White & Blue levels provide a great entry-level coaching opportunity for individuals wishing to become involved in minor sports. Coaches from past years who have not yet indicated an interest for this year and new volunteers with an interest are to complete the Volunteer Application Form abaove.
Sponsors -- Sponsors help keep the MOHA's costs down and can also benefit from advertising. For modest fee per team, sponsors' names are put on the jerseys, the team is named after the sponsor and the team is referenced that way in all stats, notices and articles. Sponsors are also recognized during Awards Week, with a keepsake plaque, and on MOHA's website where their logos can be featured as well. Multiple-team or complete-division sponsorships are negotiable.
For more information or sponsorship application forms for any of these roles or programs, contact the MOHA Hockey Office at 905-338-9220, Mail can be sent or dropped off at the MOHA office, located at 2070 Wyecroft Rd. UNit 2 L6L 6V6
