What requirements do I have as a BCLFSC member parent?
Our club is run entirely by volunteers, and as such requires the volunteer efforts of every family for the benefit of our skaters. Strong volunteer commitment within the BCLFSC community will ensure continued success in our Braemar Skating Competition, Holiday Exhibition, our Annual Ice Show, and Board-designated projects.
There are two areas where we require membership volunteering
- Standard Volunteering Requirement: 6 hours over the entire membership year or pay the $90 fee for Home Club members.
- Monitoring Requirement: 3 monitoring sessions/hours per season or pay a $90 fee for all Home, Associate and Junior Club members. Each member family must assist with ice monitoring three (3) times each contract period, for the safety of all of our BCLFSC skaters. These contract periods include: Fall (September, October, November), Winter (December, January, February), Spring (March, April, May) and Summer (June, July, August).These ice monitoring requirements are described in your Ice Contract as well as all Membership Forms. For helpful descriptions of the Ice Monitor and Volunteering Requirements, Ice Monitoring Duties and Music Playing Procedures, please click on the links.Signing up for your ice monitoring times is as easy as clicking this Signup Genius link to pick days and times that’s convenient for your schedule! As we want to ensure our skaters and coaches receive sufficient monitoring support, note that the fee has increased to $90 per each season. A season is defined as Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer if you have any questions, please contact Zhenya at email@example.com.
