There are many ways to get your 6 hours of volunteering in with out being involved full time. :) You can get your hours all in at once or volunteer here and there throughout the season. High School Students
can also volunteer, they can start the summer before entering grade nine. ;)
Each team does have duties that can be done throughout the season such as washing jerseys, taking the water bottles, 50/50, fundraising organization etc...
The Association also has tournaments every season that need volunteers that will form a committee that will organize them, and then there are volunteers that only help out the day of the tournament.
Every year in August the Association holds a HUGE
fundraiser that brings in the biggest chunk of our fundraising dollars for the organization, Tri-Sport. This event is a multi day event that requires many hands to help make the load lighter for everyone. We need a small committee of people to help organize specific parts of the tournament, under the supervision of the event coordinator. We will also need volunteers to help time keep, score keep, umpire, bar tend and much more; even an hour of time helps. You don't have to spend the whole weekend there. You can help for an hour or two, you can come and go through out the weekend, or be a part of the committee. OR better yet gather 12 men or 12 women and put in a team! This is a good way for students just starting high school to get a jump on their hours for school. Without this event and it's continued success, player registrations fees would be much more. Lets help keep this event running successfully!
To volunteer in any way, even if it is only once, please contact our Volunteer & Equipment Co-Ordinator Meredith Card

SPONSORING OR DONATING
First of all we want to thank all of our current and past sponsors for your continued support of Bancroft Minor Hockey over the years. While this season is defiantly going to be different, the kids still need your support now more than ever. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 and the restrictions we were unable to hold our annual Tri-Sport fundraiser. We are now planing a golf tournament the end of September to try to recoup a fraction of what we lost in funds from Tri-Sport. It is also uncertain whether we will be able to hold our Mineral Capital Cup Tournament in the spring either; which is also a big source of revenue for the association.
Bancroft & District Minor Hockey Association is committed to providing successful and affordable hockey programs for local youth that emphasize skills, teamwork and community. BDMHA is seeking sponsorship partners for the 2020/2021 season. All sponsorship funds directly contribute to developing our young hockey players. Development involves practice ice sessions, exhibition games, scheduled league games, team building skills, and more... Our association would not be able to provide successful hockey programs without the generous support of our community businesses and association sponsors.
BDMHA is committed to providing successful and affordable hockey to the kids within our community. With the high cost of ice time, hockey administration fees, referee and timekeeper fees, this quickly becomes a very costly endeavor. As an association every year we host a fundraising Tournament called Tri-Sport and a home Tournament called the Mineral Capital Cup, which generates much-needed funds to help cover some of our costs for the hockey season. BDMHA has also made the decision to explore new sponsorship, other than just individual team sponsorships, and open up other association partnership opportunities.
As an Association we thank our long-term outstanding sponsors for their continued yearly support, and we look forward to the opportunity to continue to promote those businesses. Without their support, minor hockey would not be feasible in Bancroft. We have also put together some new sponsorship options for additional sponsorship to help our players and families make hockey more affordable.
