Parent Fundraiser and Volunteer Commitment Policy
Fundraising and volunteering are an important part of our Club’s activities, and an integral aspect to it's continuing success. We are a non-profit organization whose board members are volunteers. We understand fundraising and volunteering can be time consuming, however we do our best to keep it easy and fun. It is expected that each family participates in fundraising and volunteers regularly throughout the season to keep program costs affordable. Program costs (ice time, coaching, etc.) are off-set through grants, volunteering and fundraising.
Volunteering generally takes place but not limited to the Skate-a-thon and Ice Show and will require at least two of hours total from each family.
Fundraising opportunities will occur throughout the season with the expectation that each family raises $50 per session.
Coaching from the sidelinesAt the Kimberley Skating club, we value a positive and supportive environment for all our skaters. We kindly ask that parents refrain from coaching from the sidelines during practices and competitions. Our dedicated coaches are here to guide and support the skaters to reach their full potential. To ensure a smooth and fair experience for everyone, families will receive one formal reminder about this policy. If coaching from the sidelines persists, it may result in a temporary suspension for your child. Trust is crucial in fostering a successful skating community, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation in maintaining a nurturing environment for all our young athletes.
