Due to enhanced safety protocols, our summer STARSkate programs require two volunteers per session. These hours do not count toward regular volunteer commitments. Please sign up using the link below. Sessions will be cancelled if spots are not filled and no refunds will be given.
The Importance of Volunteering
The Cochrane Skating Club (CSC) is a non- profit organization and is run by parent/member volunteers.
While the club asks for a volunteer bond as described below the club would appreciate your volunteer time instead of your money.
A volunteer doesn’t have to be the parents of the skater – they can be grandparents, neighbours, relatives etc., but must be over the age of 16. Without enough volunteers the club simply cannot operate. If the club is required to hire staff to run the club that will significantly increase fees for all members of our club. Required volunteer commitment per skater:
- Advanced CanSkate Skaters – 8 hours
- Junior STARSkate – 10 hours
- Intermediate STARSkate – 15 hours
- Senior STARSkate – 20 hours
Each hour is valued as $25 (so for a Senior skater the volunteer commitment per year is 40 hours or $1000). Hours will be tracked per family by the Vice President of the club and if the volunteer commitment is incomplete by April 15, 2021 the fees will be charged to your Skater Account (Uplifter) account and will need to be paid prior to next season’s registration.
Health & Safety Volunteers will be needed in the 2020-2021 season for playing music, and for health assessments. These hours are mandatory for all families and are not included in the above totals.
