Volunteer Requirements:

Volunteers are essential to the operation of SFSC. The combined efforts of
our members ensure not only that administrative responsibilities are carried
out, but also facilitate our events and activities. Hundreds of hours go
into running the club so each family is expected to volunteer their time.  

A minimum of 12 volunteer hours is required per family, who has a skater
that skates more than 1 hour per week, and to ensure that this requirement
is met each family is required to provide a $350.00 volunteer deposit cheque
(posted dated to April 1, 2017). Throughout the year it will be each
family's responsibility to keep track of their volunteer hours with the
Volunteer Coordinator. 

Families who do not volunteer a minimum of 12 hours throughout the regular
skating session will have their cheque cashed at the end of the 2016-2017
skating season, unless there are extenuating circumstances that have been
previously approved by the SFSC Executive. 

Some of the volunteer opportunities anticipated for the 2016-17 skating
season are:
.    Test Days
.    Year End Banquet
.    Casino (SFSC)
.    Casino (SPFAS)
.    SPFAS Fall Fair

One of our major fundraising opportunities is the SFSC Casino, which is
allotted to the club every 18 months by the Alberta Liquor and Gaming
Commission. Casinos are important to all members of our club as it defers
many of the costs skating families would have to otherwise incur as the
funds raised go towards subsidizing costs of ice sessions. In the years SFSC
is awarded a Casino, all families are required to volunteer at the Casino or
provide an individual who will volunteer on behalf of the family. Families
who do not provide a volunteer for the Casino may have all or a portion of
their $350 volunteer cheque cashed in order to fund non-SFSC volunteer
replacements. In the year the SPFAS is awarded a Casino, families who
volunteer at the SPFAS Casino will have reciprocal credit allocated for
their SFSC volunteer hours.

Where there are not enough volunteer opportunities in a given year to allow
families to meet their 12 hour minimum requirement, the SFSC Executive will
consider the ratio of overall opportunities available to time committed by
each family before cashing any cheque. Any questions regarding fundraising
or volunteer requirements or opportunities can be directed to the Volunteer
Coordinator. Note that Music Player duties are not considered as part of
volunteer hours.
