SPYHA Policy Manual Changes


Before the April board meeting, SPYHA solicited feedback from its members in regards to the SPYHA Policy Manual. During the board meeting, feedback that was submitted was reviewed by the board, and when necessary, votes were taken to update policies. In some cases, policies were changed and added to incentivize roles within the organization.

Here are a few of the notable policy changes:

Changes to volunteer requirements:

Mini-Mite volunteer requirements changing from 20 volunteer hours, 5 hours of which are required in concessions (Full Season) or 10 volunteer hours, 2.5 hours of which are required in concessions (Half Season), to no volunteer or concession hour requirement.

Mite volunteer requirements changing from 20 volunteer hours, 5 hours of which are required concessions, to 15 volunteer hours, 5 hours of which are required concessions.

Travel team volunteer requirements changing from 40 volunteer hours, 10 hours of which are required in concessions to 30 volunteer hours, 10 of which are required in concessions.

All coaches, team reps, board members and various committee members (per board approval), will be exempt from ALL volunteer hours, concession & non-concession. Failure for any exempt member to fulfill their position's requirements successfully; according to job description in policy manual, bylaws, or deemed necessary by the board of directors, will be billed for hours per bylaw requirements.

 

Changes to dues (Goalie & Sibling incentives):

Goalie dues for ice fees will be 50% of player’s ice fees. Goalies must be registered and rostered as a goalie to receive discount.

Parents with multiple players will receive the following discounts; First player will pay full dues. 2nd player OR player with 2nd highest dues will receive 1/3 dues for ice fees reduction. 3 or more players each will receive 1/2 dues for ice fees reduction. All players receiving discounts MUST be registered as skater, registered at the same time, reside in the same household, and current on payments due.

 

Changes to dues (Executive Committee incentives):

Player ice fees will be waived for Executive Committee members for the highest dues paid in household during the season(s) they hold office. Failure to successfully fulfill the position according to the bylaws will negate this incentive. This incentive can not be combined with any other incentive.
