If you have any questions regarding volunteering, please do not hesitate to email the volunteer chair at volunteer@skateoakville.ca.

As you know, Skate Oakville could not operate without the assistance of volunteers to help out at events. As such, each member’s volunteer efforts are greatly valued and appreciated. On behalf of the Board, we thank you in advance for your continued engagement and your dedication to the club.

Below you will find links to documents that contain descriptions of some volunteer positions that will be available for selection, as well as any additional information related to volunteering at Skate Oakville.

How To Add Volunteer Positions

Synchrofest Volunteer Information

 

As you know, Skate Oakville could not host events such as the Ice Show without the support of our members stepping up to volunteer and assist us with everything behind the scenes. All parents of skaters registered in STAR/Competitive Ice Show numbers are required to complete a certain number of volunteer commitments per number and per skater. These are in addition to your Main Season volunteer commitments.

The number of commitments is calculated on a per number and per skater basis. The maximum number of commitments per family is 5. The volunteer requirements are as follows for the 2019 Ice Show:

  • CanSkate Numbers: No Requirement
  • 1 STAR/Comp Number: 1 commitment
  • 2 STAR/Comp Numbers: 2 commitments
  • 3 STAR/Comp Numbers: 2 commitments

Please register for your commitments through the Skate Oakville website. The number of credits for each position is specified on the list. Volunteer positions are available on a first come, first serve basis. The available positions do not include Court Moms for the numbers or props.

The volunteer coordinator for the event will be in touch with you closer to the event to let you know what your position will be and what time to arrive. Shift times are approximate and depending on what job you are assigned will dictate start and end times.

As a reminder to all members, Skate Oakville volunteer commitments must be fulfilled by a parent of the skater. High school students are able to volunteer to fulfill high school volunteer hours only. If you have any questions regarding volunteering, please do not hesitate to email the volunteer chair at volunteer@skateoakville.ca .
