2021-2022 Volunteer Deposit & DIBS Hours Requirements


DCYH is a volunteer run association of parents. Our parents are encouraged to be involved in parts of making the association run. ‘DIBS’ are measured in volunteer hours and are required by each hockey family. The commitment varies by level of play:

Level of play 

Volunteer Hours 

Volunteer Deposit 

*2x checks @ 












Add'l Child  $250  1/2 Total 

*We collect two Deposit Checks during registration.

DIBS deposit checks should be post-dated 3/1/2022. The checks will not be deposited. If DIBS requirements are fulfilled, the checks are returned or destroyed (at your request).

This year, we’re offering half-credit for half-hours worked. If you work at least half your DIBS commitment, you get one check back. If you work all your DIBS you get them both back (or destroyed if requested). The association needs volunteers; “buyout checks” can’t walk in the parade (another DIBS opportunity).

Multi-Skater Family Discount

The intent of DIBS isn’t to make people work a lot of hours, but instead to encourage a lot of people SHARE the work. Families with more than one skater get a discount. DIBS is set at the highest level of play, and 6 hours for each additional skater. For example:
