Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are always needed and very much appreciated anytime. If you can volunteer any of your time to the club and any of our events and fundraisers please call the club at  250-563-4768 or contact us through  email pgfsc@telus.net

 Every event and program is planned and manned by volunteers. Many hands make light work and if every parent takes on a small job, our club will be an even better place for our children to skate.
Please check out the information below to find out more about volunteer opportunities, to look at the structure of our club and to find out how to claim hours for your volunteer levy.
PGFSC: A Snapshot

Board of Directors: The Board is responsible for the overall management of the club. Individual members have duties such as hiring coaches, setting the budget, obtaining ice, scheduling programs, setting policy and planning events. The Board approves all the major decisions. The Board generally meets twice a month, and all members of the club are welcome to attend meetings.

Chairs: Some members of the Board lead committees to accomplish specific jobs. For example, the Carnival Chair will lead a committee to plan and put on the carnival.

Committee Members: For many committees, any member of the club can join in to help with the planning and organization of a specific area (for example, Sharp Edges).

Event Volunteers: Every event needs people to come out and help. Event volunteers are needed at test days, simulation, Carnival, Santa Skate, etc.

Fundraisers: PGFSC has an annual fundraising goal of $15,000. We will need volunteers to participate in as many of our scheduled fundraisers as possible to achieve this goal.
