Get Involved

HRVC could not serve our athletes and their families like we do without the contribution of volunteers. As a non-profit organization we rely solely on volunteers to operate the club. All of our coaches, team parent representatives (TPR), coordinators and executive members are volunteers. We are currently looking for people who can give even a little time to help our club do what it does.

We do understand the demands on your time, but together we can achieve more!

HRVC remains responsive to the needs of our families and continues to thrive thanks to those of you who get involved and make our club better.

Club Executive

The Executive Committee is responsible for governance, establishing the broad policies and objectives that underlie the Club’s daily and long‐term activities. The Executive Committee determines the Club’s vision and mission and is responsible for all decision‐making, direction and implementation of Club procedures and policies. The Executive Committee members each have a vote, but preference is given to arriving at decision making by consensus. Parents and coaches are encouraged to submit feedback and suggestions, but only the Executive can vote and approve Club decisions.

The Executive meets pre-season to set the operational budget for the teams and club for the upcoming season in consultation with the Technical Director. Individual team budgets are posted at tryouts and available at all Executive meetings. The externally contracted bookkeeper works directly with the Club Treasurer and together they are fiscally responsible for the day to day operations and financial record keeping of the Club.
