Volunteer OPPORTUNTIES

Volunteering is a wonderful way to get involved with our club, meet new members and their families, and learn about the beautiful sport of figure skating. The more hours you contribute, the more events the club can offer our skaters, thus maximizing the fun and the value of membership!

Due to limited Board Members, there will be no pay $ option to opt out of volunteer hours. All service hours must be performed by an adult (age 16 and older), unless otherwise indicated. Below are (2) lists of volunteer opportunities; Learn to Skate & Advanced. Please look through the program list you are signed up for and find something that interests you! Volunteer opportunities are available on a first come, first serve basis. There will be additional opportunities that will be announced throughout the season; including our Annual Ice Show. Our Volunteer Committee will keep record of volunteer hours, however, it is ultimately each family’s responsibility to ensure that time requirements are met.

If you have questions on hours served or would like more information on a specific task, please contact a board member.
