Fundraising Activities

 

The Cochrane Skating Club is a non-profit organization.  In order to help keep the costs of programs as low as possible for all families, the club conducts various fundraising activities in a given year. 

The club requires a fundraising bond of $200 per STARSkate skater for the season to be paid upon registration at the beginning of a season.  This bond does not apply to Advanced CanSkate however these members are encouraged to support the club's fundraising through active participation in fundraising activities. 

The fundraising activities for the 2019-2020 season were announced at the parent meeting September 10, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. (Cochrane Arena upstairs). All STARSkate members were asked to attend this mandatory meeting.  All members in attendance received 1/2 hour of time toward your volunteer commitments for the season for attending this meeting. 

Skaters who raise more than the $200 bond will receive the additional funds into their skater accounts which can be used toward future program registrations, test day fees or other open invoice amounts throughout the season.
