Volunteer Policy

We will collect these checks from families after Central States Tryouts are over.

Chesterfield Hockey Association is a volunteer organization dedicated to introducing youth to the world of ice hockey and providing them with opportunities to grow as both a player and an individual. Both on the ice and off the ice, without the dedication of parents like you, we would not be able to provide the experience our kids will remember for a lifetime. This year we are implementing a volunteer policy at the club level. Every member will be asked to provide a $100 deposit check before the first tryout. For families with multiple children playing with the Chesterfield Hockey Association, we will only require you to supply a deposit check for one child and a volunteer commitment based on one child.
