Volunteer Commitment

VOLUNTEER POLICY:

You will be required to select your volunteer commitment at the time of registration. Please have a look at the options available below before you login to register to ensure a quick registration process. You will need to select a total of 8 credits in order for your registration to proceed to the check out. There will be an option to "add a subscription" if you agree then  $100.00 will be added to your registration as a by-out option instead of fulfulling the volunteer commitment. If your commitment is not fulfilled  by the end of the winter season then $100.00 will be applied to your account.  The club would appreciate your volunteer time instead of your money.

This year’s commitment will require one of the following, you can choose from the list below:

  1. Become an Executive member
  2. Volunteer at events earning 8 credits (8 hour commitment).

 The Red Deer Skating Club is a volunteer organization. The people serving  the club graciously donate their time and talents so that all children may have the opportunity to skate in the club. All parents are welcome to be a part of the executive or encouraged to help out in any way possible. Contact the club administrator for information on how you can help. It is so rewarding!

 

Frequently Asked Questions regarding the Red Deer Skating Club Volunteer Commitment:

 

Why have a volunteer commitment?

Volunteer work is essential to the quality and success of our club. Volunteer fees have proven very successful in amateur sports as a way of ensuring that there are enough people to help with the activities of the organization. The Red Deer Skating Club fee has been set at an affordable level when measured against those of other local amateur sport organizations.

Do I have to volunteer?

No, but if you don’t volunteer the club will require a $100.00 fee. A buy out option will be available at the checkout during registration.

If I don’t volunteer where does the money go?

The money will be used for the programming and expenses of our club.

Does one member of the family have to do all the volunteering?

No, any responsible person can volunteer on behalf of a skater and his/her family (a friend, relative, or even the skater himself or herself, if age appropriate.)

How long do I have to complete my volunteer commitment?

Your volunteer commitment needs to be completed by the end of the season (March).

What if I refuse to provide a volunteer commitment?

Refusal to adhere to the volunteer policy of the Red Deer Skating Club will be interpreted as an incomplete registration. The skater will need to provide the volunteer deposit before being considered registered for the skating season.
