The Vancouver Skating Club is governed entirely by a volunteer board of directors. Our primary mandate is to create an environment that maximizes the potential for all skaters and provides a positive experience for all members. The success of the Club depends on the volunteer efforts of the members. 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. There are many ways to volunteer in the Club. 

If you are interested in volunteering for any of the volunteer opportunities below please send an email to the Volunteer Coordinator directly to discuss. Thank you for volunteering. We appreciate your time and talents.

Families may choose to either:

  1. Donate the $300.00 fee at the time of registration, or
  2. Volunteer for the Club and your post dated payment will be added to your initial registration invoice – the amount of $300.00 payable March 2023.  Please select multi-payment option for invoice payment. ((Volunteer Fee – payment is processed March 10, 2023 only if 15 volunteer credits are not completed during Spring, Summer, Fall 2022 & Winter 2023 sessions.)

The $300 volunteer fee may be earned back by completing 15 credits worth of volunteer service. Credit values for individual tasks are listed below. The volunteer credits must be earned during the Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter sessions.
