The Winter Club of St. Catharines

Volunteer Opportunities

The Winter Club of St. Catharines would not exist without its volunteers and we are always looking for volunteers to enhance our club. There are several volunteer opportunities available for skaters and their families depending on the program each skater is in.

CanSkate Families

Any parent, guardian or adult family member, willing to help out is always welcome! Please let any board member know or contact us at teamwinterclub@hotmail.com. Some of the opportunities are listed below.

StarSkate, Test Stream Families and Adult Skate

Upon registration in the Starskate, Test Stream, or Adult programs , families are asked to post a Volunteer bond in the form of a post dated cheque for the following April, for the value of $120.00. Upon the completion of, or the equivalent of 12 hours of volunteer time, the cheque will be returned.

It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to sign up for volunteer activities. The volunteer hours must be completed by March of the current skating season.
