We Need Your Help!

The Lima Police Department / Exchange Roller Hockey Program is starting its 12th season. As with any organization or person, aging brings about its own set of issues.

We have focused on growing the league over the years and have established the program in the neighborhood of 250 players. Unfortunately, we have not been able to grow our active volunteer group into a comfortable size. As many of the original players in the league have moved on, so have a significant number of our volunteers. Our core group is aging with a number of volunteers no longer having children in the league, with most of the cast of major characters being veterans of 10 years or more. This is long enough to see a player move up through the age groups and into the adult volunteer group.

We need to get some new blood into the organization to allow us to build for the future. Depending on the same people year after year leads to burnout - and after giving years to the organization some folks want to move on to other things now that they don’t have family ties to the organization.

We have critical needs in the areas of concessions, equipment maintenance and management, rink maintenance and – as with any busy organization – grunt work. If you have a desire to help keep this a viable program for the kids, please come to the registration dates and sign up to help – or send an email through the website and we will work to find a fit for you within our organization. Coaching, officiating, scoring, concessions, sponsorships, fund raising, facility upkeep and the governing board don’t just happen. It takes a huge number of volunteer hours to make the program available at the very low price charged.

The league board wants to extend our sincere thanks to everyone who works so hard now in the program. Without you, there would be no program. We also want to challenge many new people to take this opportunity to “pay it forward” through a program that has given so much to so many kids over the years.
