"A hundred years from now it will not matter
What my bank account was,
The sort of how I lived in,
Or the kind of clothes I wore.
But the world may be different because
I was important in the life of a child."

What qualifications do I need?
All you need is an interest in skating, a desire to volunteer a few hours.

How much time do I need to donate?

The amount of time depends on your area of interest and expertise as well as the need of the club. We have volunteers who donate anywhere from 20-25 hours per week. We also have volunteers who donate a couple of hours per month. We also have volunteers who help out occasionally, such as with the planning of special events.

What would I be doing?
This depends on your skills and interest as well as in consultation with your local club. Clubs are always looking for club executive members, special event organizers, people to oversee club public and media relations. If you cannot commit to that amount of time, clubs are always looking for people to assist in the organization of their annual ice shows, help out at competitive events, playing music and so on. How you can assist is limited solely by your imagination.

What can I do since my time is so limited?

Don't let this be a problem. We want to tap your interest and marry it with our needs. As a result, we will work with your schedule.
