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.  
 
There are two parts to our club volunteer commitment:

1.  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, 2019). 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 2018-2019
skating season, unless there are extenuating circumstances that have been
previously approved by the SFSC Executive.   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.


2.  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. To ensure that this
requirement is met, each family is required to provide a $150.00 casino deposit cheque
(posted dated to April 1, 2019).

 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.
