3. Cheques are collected by the Team Manager and submitted to the GHC Volunteer Coordinator no later than October 31.

5. GHC members are responsible for tracking and reporting their fulfilled credits on our Volunteer Commitment Form. Volunteer Commitment Forms are due no later than April 30 of the given season.

6. Volunteer credit requirements will not exceed 2 credits per family. GHC families will fulfil and report the credit requirements based on their oldest registered player.

7. Families who do not complete their required volunteer commitment will have their cheques cashed no earlier than April 30 and no later than May 31.

8. Dishonoured cheques — cheques that are not accepted by the financial institutions due to Non Sufficient Funds (NSF) or stop-payments — are subject to a $35 administrative fee.

9. The administrative fee ($35) and the value of the unfulfilled credit ($300) will be added to the GHC members’ account and they will be considered “Not in good standing” until the payment is received.

10. GHC reserves the right not to release a member “Not in good standing” for future registration with GHC or any other Hockey Canada member association.

11. GHC Elite families are required to participate in an additional four volunteer positions during the annual Calgary Firestarter Tournament. Families that do not meet the required volunteer position spots will be assessed an additional $500 on their registration fees.
