Print** - Bond Program Guidelines

Thorold Athletic Amateur Association is run completely by volunteers. Many of our members are
unaware of just how much volunteer work and fundraising is necessary to operate a quality hockey
program.

Although not everyone has the hockey experience or skills to assist as an on-ice volunteer, there are
many other roles that contribute greatly to the success of our association.

The Volunteer Bond Program has been introduced to encourage our association members to step

forward and get involved.

Every family with a registered player in TAAA must provide payment in the form of a cheque before your

child (ren) will be allowed to begin this season. The cheque must be postdated for April 1 st , next year.

as outlined below.
