junior board

Thief River Falls Skating Club Junior Boards goal is to increase commitment and provide leadership opportunities, while giving our skaters an important voice in the direction of the club. 

The TRFSC Junior Board of Directors was established in 2023 to serve the club by providing a voice on behalf of the junior membership. These volunteers participate under the supervision of the Board of Directors and a parent advisor (Parent advisor will be selected by the Board of Directors). In addition to providing their perspective, the Junior Board members coordinate events throughout the year to engage members in social events, fundraise for the club, and increase awareness about figure skating in the local community.

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to learn responsibility, service, leadership, and accountability. Our service on the Junior Board is a front-row seat to the highest level of operations, exposure to board governance, project management, and fundraising. We will learn integrity and respect, and will handle all situations with dignity and poise all while participating in a sport that we love.

JUNIOR BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Depending on the size of the Junior Board, positions may include a max of 5 positions: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and Liaison Chair positions. These positions will be decided on by vote of the Junior Board members during the first official Junior Board meeting. Junior Board members will serve on the Board for 1 year, but may elect to reapply for additional terms if desired.
