Volunteer Requirements

Figure 8 Skating Club is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The success of the Club depends on the volunteer efforts of members. Volunteering in the club is a great opportunity to learn about the sport of figure skating and how the club runs, as well as a great way to meet other club members and have a good time while helping out. It is mandatory for every family with skaters registered in PreSTAR, PreSTAR Academy, Adult Learn to Figure Skate or STARSkate to volunteer 12 credits and assist with Fundraising. You will be able to pick your positions when you register online.
