Volunteers are critical to the success of all youth sports programs; Rapids included! Without volunteers the Rapids program simply would not exist.

3 Steps to Become a Volunteer


1. Register with USA Hockey as a Volunteer. 

Current season registration required. Registration is valid from September 1st and ends the following year on August 31st.


5 minutes $0

2. Complete an USA Hockey Background Check screening.

All adult coaches, officials, board members, employees, volunteers, and anyone else who will have regular contact with, or authority over, athletes under the age of 18 are required to submit to a background screen before any such contact with those athletes.


This fee is refundable. Submit your receipt to Finance for a refund. 

5 minutes                                 $30

3. Complete the Safesport Online Training

The USA Hockey Safe Sport Program is the online training/education that is available to help our members become aware of the information necessary to help prevent abuse from occurring in our sport. 

Core module - 90 min


Refresher - 30 min



Each family is required to complete 10 hours of volunteer time; half of which are required during home tournaments. This is enforced through the refundable volunteer fee that is paid up front during player registration (it's part of the season registration fee). 

For the 2023-24 season, this fee is $400. 

The fee is refundable when you complete your 10 hours.  Accruing 10 hours is easy and quick. It's per family. Start accruing your hours by reviewing what's needed and claiming an item.

The Volunteer Coordinator

This is a Steering Committee level role with voting privledges.  It's a 2-year commitment (as are all committee level positions).  "I loved getting to know so many families throughout the entire club. I enjoyed supporting the Team Managers who were so dedicated to the success of their teams!" --- Cindy Tisher, a previous volunteer Coordinator. So true... this role is perfect for someone who enjoys meeting new people and high fives with the tight knit crew of team managers.  You'll be at he heart of our Rapids community!
