Team Roles

The BMHA is a volunteer based organization. All of our Coaches, Managers, and other Team Officials; as well as members of the BMHA Board of Directors are dedicated volunteers.

Each team requires 6 to 8 volunteers. There are many interesting roles available each season. The Rules, Duties & Regulations document outlines all of the job descriptions for volunteer positions. What a great way to get more involved in your child's activities, as well as to support your local hockey community!

All volunteers must have completed a Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) with Ottawa Police Services (OPS) prior to working with the players in the BMHA.  The application can be made on-line on Ottawa Police Service website here. The OPS requires that an acknowledgement from the BMHA be provided as part of the application. Click here to download the Volunteer Acknowledgement Letter from the BMHA, complete it and have it available when completing the VSC request. Once the check has been completed please direct the result to safety@blackburnstingers.ca.
