The Hignite Memorial Cup is a growing tradition in Dayton youth hockey, and the Dayton Hockey Association is proud to host this tournament in honor of Coach Joe Hignite. 2018 marks the 7th year for this event, and this year we will welcome 18 teams. We need your help to make it another successful tournament.
The tournament is January 12 - 15, 2018, and games will be held at Kettering Ice Arena, and NTPRD Chiller (Springfield). Volunteer positions at both rinks include registration/locker room assignor, time keeper, and scorekeeper. Here are brief descriptions of each position:
- Registration/Locker Room Assignor: Check teams in as they arrive for each game by directing players and coaches to the appropriate locker room, and having the team manager complete the scoresheet (be sure to have the head coaches sign the scoresheet). Provide locker room keys to each team's coach/manager, in exchange for car keys to be held as a deposit. Check the locker rooms for damage and tidiness once the team is finished and prior to returning the deposit and collecting the locker room key. The first shift each day will help set up the registration table(s) and get things organized. The last shift each day will assist in securing registration materials, game pucks, and score sheets prior to leaving.
- Scorekeeper: Serve as the official scorer for the respective game(s). Complete the score sheet, noting goals, assists, and penalties as indicated by the on-ice officials. We would like to have shots on goal tracked for each team and recorded on the score sheet for each game.
- Time Keeper: Serve as the official time keeper for the respective game(s). Run the time clock based on the appropriate length of game periods and tournament rules. Post penalties on the score board as required.
In some cases, the time keeper or score keeper positions are combined with the registration position when there are single or partial games to cover.
To volunteer, please visit our Hignite Memorial Cup Dibs Page to claim positions you would like to fill.
For volunteers with players in DHA programs, your account will be credited $20 for every shift worked. This credit may be applied to current season registration fees or to future programs. To be eligible for the credit, you must be logged into the account used to register your child(ren) when claiming Dibs items. Please note that other family members and friends may work shifts on your behalf and those shifts will still be eligible for the credit as long as the shifts are claimed through your account. Youth ages 13 & up are eligible to work registration at any rink, as long as they are paired with an adult.
Thank you for helping to make the 2018 Hignite Memorial Cup and DHA a success!
