PrintBond Information
Thorold Amateur Athletic Association Volunteer Bond Program


To encourage all Association members to become actively involved in the operation and success of the association.


Many of our Association members are unaware of just how much volunteer work and fundraising is necessary to operate and administer a quality hockey program.  The Volunteer Bond Program was introduced to encourage Thorold Amateur Athletic Association (TAAA) members to step forward and help.  The time commitment is not unreasonable and the help is beneficial and appreciated!!!!  Participation in the Volunteer Bond Program is a mandatory component of registration with the Association and in no way does it exclude families from volunteering their player's team.

Volunteer Hours Required

A minimum of 10 hours of Association Approved volunteer work is required to fulfill each families Volunteer Bond obligations per season.   There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the season.

Value of Bond

$200 per family

Submitting the Volunteer Bond Cheque

All volunteer bond cheques (post dated for April 1st) must e submitted prior to evaluations with the signed Volunteer Bond Agreement.  Cheques and forms must be submitted at the time of the registration.

All cheques will be returned or destroyed upon completion of ten hours of volunteer time.

Reporting Responsibility


The following roles will qualify for a full bond:

Executive Members
Coaches, Managers and Trainers
Goalie Coach

Frequently Asked Questions

1.  Why is there a volunteer Bond?
The Volunteer Bond has been introduced to encourage Association members to step forward and get involved in its operation and success.

2.  How much is the Volunteer Bond?
$200 per family

3.  How may hours do I need to put in?
A minimum of 10 hours per season must be met by each family

4.  I don't want to volunteer or I'm really busy, do I have to volunteer?
No, you can opt out of volunteering.  Just pay out your bond when registering.

5.  Is the Volunteer Bond Mandatory?
The volunteer bond is mandatory for all members to remain in good standing in the association.  Unfortunately, your family member(s) will not be able to evaluate and will not be registered on a team until the Association receives your cheque.

6.  If I do not complete the ten hours will my cheque be cashed?

7.  I know a person that is doing two roles that qualify for the volunteer hours (coach on one team, assistant coach on another).  Is this permitted?

8.  Who is tracking my volunteer hours?
You are responsible to track and report your own hours.  The Volunteer Bond Credit form is available from the website and must be used to record your hours.  All hours must be signed by an executive member.  Those volunteering for major roles in the association will automatically have their hours recorded by the association.  (Board roles, coaches, assistant coaches, managers and trainers)

9.  Can I work off my bond the following year?
No, we need volunteers for every season.  We are working for one year at a time.  Once this year closes (April 30th of the current season) we move into a new season.  You can then begin to work off your bond before the season starts.
