MYHockey Seeking Volunteers

August 17, 2016

The 2016-17 hockey season is just about to start in many parts of North America. And once again, MYHockey is seeking volunteers to enter scores and keep the system as complete and accurate as humanly possible. Approximately 250 volunteers from last season have already renewed for the upcoming season, but with over 1800 divisions and 215 different rankings, new volunteers are needed ensure the accuracy of MYHockey, youth hockey's information database.

Volunteers do two main things. They enter scores (an average of 10-20 per week) and they keep an eye on their division and its teams. A division is one grouping of teams in a league, like the GTHL - West 04 AA division. Most divisions have between 6 and 16 teams. We ask volunteers to update their divisions with game scores for all the teams in their division each week. With non-league games being entered by other volunteers and with members entering a few scores, MYHockey needs people affiliated with a division to make sure errors don't arise, jeopardizing the accuracy of the system. Most volunteers spend less than 30 minutes per week with 15-20 minutes being average.

Those interested in volunteering should go to the Report Scores page and click on the "Tell Me More About Becoming a MYHockey Volunteer" link or simply CLICK HERE.

Additionally, MYHockey has made thousands of updates this summer on teams, clubs and leagues for the fall/winter season. Still, hundreds of league divisions still need your help in confirming who will be participating this fall. Some leagues like the LCAHL in Michigan and the NIHL in Illinois won't finalize their divisions until next month, while others are already published. Your help in making MYHockey as accurate as possible is always appreciated. Please use the purple plus graphic located just above the rankings/listing table to "Request New Team be Added". You can request an update to a team's information by clicking on the purple pencil graphic in that same general area of the team details page (upper right side of the main data area of the page). You can also let us know about any teams that won't be fielded this year by using the link found on the bottom of the team's details page.

Best of luck to all this year!
