At the Lethbridge Skating Club we recognize the importance of volunteering. We ask families to participate in and help facilitate the delivery of successful club events. Descriptions of various volunteer duties required throughout the season at various events can be found here.
We no longer have minimum volunteer requirements for CanSkate, CanPowerSkate or AdultSkate families. However, when you sign up to participate in events, we will ask you to commit to helping out so that we may deliver a successful experience for everyone involved.
STARSkate and SynchroSkate families are asked to volunteer a set number of hours each season based on the highest-level registered skater in the family. This is a per family commitment, not a per skater commitment. For example; if you have one child registered in Group STARSkate and one child registered in Private Lesson STARSkate you are required to fulfill the commitment for a Private Lesson skating family only.
We require each family whose highest-level skater is registered in PRIVATE LESSON STARSkate to complete the following two requirements:
- 16 hours of volunteering of which must include: 1 Chinook open shift AND 1 Carnival shift
- 5 Ice Ambassador Shifts throughout the Fall & Winter Seasons (click the sign-up button below to secure your shifts!)
We require each family whose highest-level skater is registered in GROUP STARSkate to complete:
- 10 hours of volunteering of which must include: 1 Chinook Open shift AND 1 Carnival shift
We require each family who have skaters registered in SynchroSkate to complete:
- 5 hours of volunteering over the course of the season
We have many events throughout the season that you could fulfill your hours at. Check them out at the EVENTS tab above. Additional opportunities will also be posted on the club’s bulletin boards at ATB Centre and Civic Ice Centre or sent via email over to our members.
Volunteer Commitment Guarantee
A post-dated commitment guarantee item of $200 will be added to the member registration invoice at time of registration. If the ‘Pay by Instalment’ option is chosen at check-out, this item will appear on the registration invoice as a payment with a due date of May 1, 2022. This item will be voided before the due date if the required commitment for volunteering has been met.
If you wish to pay your registration invoice in full at time of registration, please select ‘Pay by Instalment’, complete the required initial payment, then navigate to your ‘Account’ page and proceed to pay the balance of your invoice less the $200 commitment guarantee.
If you choose to opt out and not fulfill your volunteer hours, your commitment guarantee line item of $200 will be processed on May 1, 2022. You have until March 31st, 2022 to fulfill your volunteer hours commitment.
