WELCOME - Volunteering at SMFSC
A link to our volunteer search page will appear when positions are ready online. See also our STARSkate Fundraising and Volunteer Commitments. Volunteer positions will be on a first come, first serve basis.
RESPONSIBILITIES WHILE VOLUNTEERING
Please understand that while volunteering , watching your own children, other children or leaving to do other errands is not acceptable . Please make sure you arrive on time and are available the entire required time stipulated. If you are unable to do this then the credit for the volunteer hrs will be cancelled.
**** If paying the entire amount by credit card for your skaters programs at the beginning of the season , the $250 buy out is in your final amount due.
When your volunteer hours are complete , we can ONLY CREDIT the $250 to your Club account. ****Refunds of the $250 are not possible with this type of payment so therefore we recommend that you pay in installments.*******
Please only sign up for 1 volunteer position at a time. We have lots of members needing to do hours over the year and there will be plenty of opportunities to do that. To make sure that you are credited with your volunteer time and that the buy out of $250 is removed from your account ,please use the name associated with your skaters account.
NEW IN SEPT 2018 - if you have a skater in your family that is 16 yrs or older , they can now be considered to do the volunteer time towards your buyout. When we post positions it will stipulate if a young adult can NOT be considered for that posted position.
PLEASE NOTE: Program Assistants who are with the Can Skate lessons - their hours are credited towards Highschool or our Mentoring program. These volunteer hours cannot be used towards the buyout hours.
HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO VOLUNTEER ?
A minimum of 5 hours must be completed for the $250 buy out to be removed from your account. Depending upon your interest and expertise , volunteering can be for special events , test days, handing out materials to classes or recruiting volunteers for the semi-annual Ice show. Hours can be done over the entire season.
WHAT WOULD I BE DOING ?
That depends on your skills and interest as well as in consultation with the club. SMSC is always looking for executive members, special event organizers, people to oversee sponsorship and fundraising, public and media relations. How you can assist is contingent on the limits of your imagination. We want to tap into your interest and work with your schedule.
