Who Can Volunteer
All families registered in programs under STARSkate and CompetitiveSkate
Skaters must be at least 12 years old and family members must be at least 14 years old to Volunteer.
Why we need Volunteers
As stated in our policies, Volunteers are essential to the operation of LBFSC. The combined efforts of our members ensure facilitation of events and activities. Hundreds of hours go into running our club, and each family is expected to volunteer their time. A minimum of 12 hours or 24 credits is required per season and signed off on as you register for programs.
Our skating season runs May through April, providing many opportunities to get your required Volunteer hours. Families who do not meet requirements will have their Volunteer cheque cashed on May 15 of the current skating season.
Rink Chair hours do not count for Volunteer hours. Please contact our Rink Chair Coordinator with any questions regarding Rink Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org
How to Volunteer
Volunteer opportunities can be accumulated through several LBFSC activities throughout the seasons. There will be a separate “Call” for Volunteers throughout the skating season.
Credits are applied to every ½ hour of Volunteer time. LBFSC tracking system works on a credit/hour of Volunteer time. It is your responsibility to ensure you have met basic requirements to avoid cheque cashing.
Credits are applied:
½ Hour = 1 Credit
1 Hour = 2 Credits
$15 = 1 Hour = 2 Credits
To a minimum of 12 Hours = 24 Credits
Monetary amounts are applied when there is a “call” for food/beverage pick up during Test Days. Questions regarding Test days can be sent to email@example.com
Cancellation of Events
Our club runs on dedicated volunteers who desire to have their children participate in multiple events throughout the year. We will provide many opportunities to volunteer for events, sending multiple requests for each event. When we do not have enough volunteers to run an event, we risk having to cancel the event. Cancellation of an event wastes volunteer time already committed to organizing the event and is a disappointment to the children anticipating participation.
