As one of the Mississauga Hockey League's largest associations, we rely solely on volunteers like you to help our youth learn the great game of hockey. More importantly, minor hockey is a fantastic vehicle for teaching our children valuable life skills. At Erindale, our focus is athlete-centered, meaning that we place a greater emphasis on fun and development than winning.

While the volunteer commitment may seem large in terms of police checks and certifications, they are necessary to ensure that Erindale's children learn the Great Canadian Game in a safe and positive atmosphere. If selected, you will be joining a strong and supportive group of volunteers as well as reaping the rewards of watching children grow and develop. Thank you for putting your name forward. We do appreciate it!
