Volunteer Policy

*Amended July, 2024 - please note bolded updates below*

Unlike many other sport associations, the Fredericton Youth Ringette Association (FYRA) will not ask any families to do any sort of fundraising. Instead, the FYRA's primary focus and fundraising event is around the Fredericton Ringette Early Bird Tournament (November 15-17, 2024). 

This tournament, which welcomes over 60 teams to the capital city, takes place over 5 ice surfaces and is the largest annual sporting event in Fredericton. It involves hundreds of volunteer hours to pull off this top class event and this is our primary focus for volunteer hours. We ask that all FYRA families perform a minimum of 5 hours of volunteer work at this event. It's greatly appreciated and absolutely needed. 

Please see the details below, and don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. The volunteer sign up form is based on the tournament schedule and we aim to have it ready 2 weeks prior to the tournament to give everyone ample time to sign up.

FYRA Volunteer Policy (U9 & up)

FYRA requires that each family volunteer a minimum of 5 hours during the Early Bird Tournament (November) and 3 hours when Fredericton hosts Provincials.

7.2        Families who do not wish to volunteer have the option of paying a *$75 fee (per player) in addition to their regular registration fee as part of the season registration.


7.3.      If a family chooses not to pay the $75 per player fee at registration and does not volunteer the required 5 hours per family at the Early Bird Tournament, they will be required to pay a late volunteer opt-out fee of $200. 

7.4      In exceptional circumstances, volunteer hours can be made up at other times, with FYRA Board approval. **Requests must be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to the Tournament Chair at FYRAtournamentchair@gmail.com** 

7.5       A Volunteer Manager will manage a comprehensive list of volunteer opportunities and promote online.

7.6       Exempt from this requirement are head coaches, and board ratified assistant coaches, tournament chair(s) and committee chairson ice officials who do at least five games per year, managers (limit one per team) and U7 families (with no children in higher divisions). **However we recommend everyone assist with the volunteering**

7.7       Outstanding fees must be paid in full before the commencement of the following season.
