Timekeepers - Apply by August 24th, 2018
Submitted By Brett Bickerton on Tuesday, August 14, 2018
Interested in timekeeping? The Online Application Form for a position of Timekeeper with the WMHA for the 2018-19 season is now open. 

For this upcoming season, we will be limiting the number of Timekeepers we will be accepting into the Program. Last year, we had an overwhelming number of qualified applicants apply and in an effort to not leave anyone out who was qualified, many were accepted. The increased number of Timekeepers accepted, resulted in a decrease of shifts per Timekeeper, which in turn, resulted in an increase in negative feedback from Parents about the number and timing of their child's shifts. 

This year we will be accepting 30 timekeepers maximum - 15 returning and 15 new timekeepers. Returning Timekeepers must re-apply for the position - you are not automatically accepted into the Program. 
Returning Timekeepers will be assessed on their behaviour during last years season - were you punctual? did you do a good job? did you pick up additional shifts when needed? 
New Timekeepers will be assessed based on their personal skills, good conduct (with the WMHA), rules knowledge and availability.
A wait list will be created for those applicants who are qualified but not immediately accepted into the Program. 
The Application will only be available until AUGUST 24th, 2018. After that time, no new applicants will be accepted. 

The minimum requirements for all timekeepers is as follows:
  • Timekeepers must be a minimum of 13 years of age to timekeep for WMHA games (as of August 31, 2018)
  • Timekeepers must complete the online application form to be considered. Acceptance is not guaranteed. All applications will be reviewed and a reply will be provided to notify the timekeeper of a successful application. 
  • Upon acceptance, new timekeepers are required to successfully complete a certification program. This program will be scheduled in early September and is MANDATORY for new timekeepers.
  • This position requires considerable commitment by the timekeeper and if under age 18, their parent or guardian also. This position requires punctuality, personal skills, good conduct, rules knowledge, timing device operation and game sheet accuracy.

Timekeepers must block their time in the online Game Official portal on a bi-weekly basis and will then receive automated notifications for timekeeping offers that they must accept or deny. Note that consistent denial of offers may result in removal from the list of available timekeepers.  

Cheques are cut on a monthly basis and can be picked up at the hockey office. 

If you have any questions, please contact Tracey Williams in the hockey office.
