Team Financial Guidelines

Each team is responsible for its own financial operations. All teams are required to have a Team Treasurer, whose duties are outlined in the Financial Guidelines. The team treasurer will be responsible for maintaining a team bank account and budget. This person should have at minimum a basic understanding of accounting.

A budget will include cash calls, fundraising, donations and sponsorship. Expenses typically include tournament entry fees, team-building, player development, practice jerseys, exhibition games and bank fees. The treasurer should keep all the receipts until the season has concluded.

Officiating Rates

All issues concerning the operation of a Cohort shall be communicated using the following process. The purpose of this process is to establish a standard approach to communication so GHC members can resolve difficulties or misunderstandings in a timely and transparent manner.

At no time should a GHC parent or player contact a member of Hockey Calgary, Hockey Alberta or the Central Zone Referee Committee for a resolution to a team issue. This is in accordance with the communication policies for these governing organizations.

If a GHC member wishes to report an incident to the GHC Board, it must be done so in a formal manner in accordance with GHC's Conflict Resolution Policy. The complaint must be signed and in writing, and must be filed within fourteen (14) days of the incident. Anonymous or third party complaints will not be accepted.


Parent and/or Player

In issues that provoke an emotional response and/or risk of hostile confrontation, please honour the 24-Hour Rule. This is an effective way to validate the facts and collect your thoughts.



Parents must first work on a resolution with the Cohort Manager and Cohort Coach Leader. If necessary, arrange a face-to-face meeting to discuss the issue. The goal of this meeting is to solve the problem.



If the issue cannot be resolved, please consult your Age Group Coordinator. AGC will consult with the appropriate Board member(s) and GHC Policies to work towards a satisfactory conclusion.
