Volunteering & Fundraising with Skate Brandon
Volunteering with Skate Brandon
As a non-profit organization, Skate Brandon is run and managed by a group of volunteers: the Skate Brandon Board, which consists of parents and coaches of our skaters.
Volunteer work is essential to the quality and success of our club, and to your child's experience here. Prior experience is not required. Volunteering in the Club is a great opportunity to learn about our recreational and competitive programs, as well as a fun way to meet other club members and have a good time while helping out! Please Contact Us if you have any amount of time that you offer to help us out! :-)
For the 2017-2018 season all Skate Brandon members will be required to pay a Volunteer Fee. For each day per week that your child skates, there will be a $20 Volunteer fee (i.e. if your child skates once per week, there will be a $20 fee; if your child skates twice a week, there will be a $40 fee, etc.) You only have to volunteer one (1) shift at a Skate Brandon event to be reimbursed your $20.
The Skate Brandon events that will require volunteers include the Skate Brandon Colour Run on September 10, 2017, the Skate Brandon Winter Festival that is held in December 2017, the Crocus Synchronized Skating Championships (held in Souris) in March 2018, and the Skate Brandon Ice Show in March 2018.
Fundraising with Skate Brandon
There will be various fundraising opportunities throughout the year that any member of Skate Brandon can participate in. We encourage anyone to help with fundraising for the Club so that we can continue to provide quality programs.
