Would You Like To Get Involved?
The Single System is the county's junior hockey pathway. It is growing and becoming more successful each year. We are looking for volunteers to help in a variety of ways, to help manage what is currently happening and to help create, develop and deliver new ideas.
Are you an umpire willing to officiate at our events, or have an interest in managing or organizing any of our DC or AC groups?
Could you collate and maintain a coaches register for the county? Keeping a log of coaches and their availability?
You may have some skills and ideas that haven't been thought about that would drive the county forward?
