FMHA is a volunteer-run non-profit organization and we require all parents to volunteer in some form throughout the year. If you do not want to participate as a board member or a rostered volunteer, there are many additional jobs needed such as scorekeepers, timekeepers, penalty box attendants, jersey parents, fundraising. Also note, that every team will host a home tournament at which ALL parents are expected to volunteer their time. Remember "many hands makes light work"
