Volunteering

Want to lend a hand? We welcome your help!

 

As a non-profit organization, Langley Skating Club is run and managed by a group of

volunteers: the LSC board and skaters' parents. The 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 the sport

of figure skating and how the club runs, as well as a fun way to meet other Club

members and have a good time while helping out.

 

Skaters registered in Junior Academy and higher levels are required to submit a cheque when registering at any time during the Fall, Winter or Spring sessions in the current skating year (September 2023 to June 2024). 

 

Langley Skating Club members have two options:

1. Volunteer with refundable deposit:

Those who choose the Volunteer Deposit option must submit a  postdated cheque in the amount specified in the chart below, which is based on the skater’s designation. The specified hours of volunteering for the Club must be completed and documented by June 30, 2024; otherwise the Volunteer Deposit postdated cheque will be cashed.

2. Volunteer opt-out payment:

Those who choose the Volunteer Fee/Opt out option must submit immediately a dated cheque in the specified amount to be paid at the time of registration. This cheque will be cashed immediately and the family is not required to perform a minimum number of volunteer hours.

Please note: There is no partial option for hours or payment amount; the two choices are fulfilling the specified number of hours of volunteering making the specified payment of the full amount based on designation.

The amount of the Volunteer Deposit, Fee, and Hours is dependent on the skater's designation.

  • Junior Academy: Minimum Volunteer hours Required: 3 hours | Cheque Amount: $200

  • Junior: Minimum Volunteer hours Required: 3 hours | Cheque Amount: $200

  • Intermediate: Minimum Volunteer hours Required: 6 hours | Cheque Amount: $400

  • Senior: Minimum Volunteer hours Required: 6 hours | Cheque Amount: $400

The number of hours is per immediate family, not per skater, and is based on the highest skater designation in the family. Those who choose the Volunteer Deposit option must complete the specified minimum number of hours based on their skater's designation.

Board Members will get full credits for their volunteer hours.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Notification will be sent out by email (via SignUpGenius)  when volunteers are needed. Tasks are assigned on a first come, first serve basis.   

 

It is the responsibility of parents to ensure they provide a valid email address and fulfill the minimum hours’ requirement if they would like their deposit cheque returned. Completed tasks/hours must be recorded on an ongoing basis in a Volunteer Hours Log spreadsheet - Link below. 

Tasks performed by children will not be accepted as volunteer hours, unless approved in advance.
