All Adults in the Club are expected to Volunteer as part of the Club. The volunteer work of Adults helps keep our Club functioning and supports skaters.
Volunteer activities include fundraising activities (such as working at a Casino when allotted, Pub Nights, FundScrip Gift Cards, and Silent Auction) and general volunteering such as helping set-up and take-down mats at practices, serving on the Club Executive, and helping to run Meets each year. For more information on general volunteering and fundraising, please see Volunteering, Executive, and Support.
Volunteer Opportunities for Parents during Competitions
The following volunteer positions make a meet exciting and a great learning experience for the kids – and their parents. Each volunteer role is an important part of the whole competition team. While some positions require special knowledge or training (e.g. Chief Place Judge), others are open to all and training can be completed during the Meet.
During our two Club Meets, we need your help in volunteering for some of these positions. Many positions require several volunteers, so you will always have a team around you who will be pleased to help you learn the role. When you volunteer for these jobs, you will gain new insight into speed skating that will help your child excel at the sport. The Club provides training on the tasks required of each position to ensure volunteers feel comfortable in their roles.
In addition to these specific jobs at any meet, for our own meets we provide a lunch and snacks for all volunteers. All Club members are expected to contribute food items for these meals and we will need volunteers to run the lunch room. Sign-up sheets for the food items and volunteer positions will be circulated by email about 2 weeks before a Club Meet.
