Rushmore Hockey runs entirely with volunteers. It is for such reasons that we have implemented the volunteer policy. Each family will write a deposit check that is not cashed unless that family does not fulfill their volunteer requirements. 1 hour is worth $10, so a family with 1 mite skater, will need to turn in a $250 deposit check to their team coordinator once the teams are established. Hours can be worked throughout the pre-season and the entire season.
