2020-2021 Mandatory Bingo Policy


Who has to work the MANDATORY BINGO?

Every player registration is required to work ONE MANDATORY BINGO. If you have two children in the program, you will be required to work TWO MANDATORY BINGOS. If you have three or more children registered in the program, you are only responsible to work a maximum of TWO MANDATORY BINGOS.

Registrations in ALL CATEGORIES must work a mandatory bingo. This includes U7 - Discovery, U7 - Jr Timbits, U7 - Sr Timbits, U9 (Novice), U11 (Atom) and U13 (Peewee) registrations. A mandatory bingo must also be worked by ALL Assistant Coaches, Managers, Treasurers or anyone else volunteering for their assigned teams at the team level.

Who is EXEMPT from working the MANDATORY BINGO?

The only persons EXEMPT from working the mandatory bingo is the HEAD COACH of each team as well as the elected and appointed members of the Hawks Athletic Club Executive. Since Head Coaches are not selected until after Player Registration, Head Coaches who pay out their bingos for $200.00 will be reimbursed and Head Coaches who have worked a mandatory bingo before they were named as Head Coach will earn a credit for the next season.

What is the procedure for booking the MANDATORY BINGO?

You must register for your mandatory bingo ONLINE at www.hawksathletics.ca no later than November 1st, 2020 . The Gaming Director WILL NOT BE CONTACTING YOU TO REMIND YOU. The available bingo dates will be posted and updated on the Hawks’ website at all times. If you have booked your bingo in person or online but need to reschedule it for some reason, it is YOUR responsibility to inform the Gaming Director by email or phone call no later than a MINIMUM of 48 hours notice. If you fail to give an adequate amount of notice, you will be considered to have defaulted on your bingo requirement responsibility and either your bingo deposit cheque in the amount of $300.00 will be cashed or the credit card number you’ve provided us with will be charged the $300.00 default fine. The Gaming Director can be reached by email at gaming@hawksathletics.ca or by phone at (780) 238-3997.

An undated deposit cheque in the amount of $300.00 must be submitted at the time of registration to reserve your bingo date. Your cheque will be returned after your mandatory bingo is worked. If you no longer have cheques you must leave a credit card number to use as a bingo deposit. Your credit card will not be charged unless you default on your bingo.

Registrations that are MAILED in must include the $300.00 deposit cheque or a credit card number to be used for this purpose. Similarly, if you register ONLINE, you must follow-up your registration by mailing a $300.00 deposit cheque to the Registrar (Mailing Address: Hawks Athletic Club, 12808- 134A Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB T5L 3W6) or by contacting the Gaming Director with a credit card number to be used in lieu of a cheque deposit (gaming@hawksathletics.ca or (780) 238-3997).

If you do not want to work the MANDATORY bingo it can be paid out for an extra $200.00 in fees AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION ONLY.

What will happen if I don’t book my MANDATORY BINGO by November 1st, 2020?

Failure to book your mandatory bingo by November 1st, 2020 will result in the $300.00 default fine being payable immediately to the Hawks Athletic Club.
