Volunteer Policy

Figure 8 Skating Club is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The success of the Club depends on the volunteer efforts of members. Volunteering with the club is a great opportunity to learn about the sport of figure skating, to meet other club members and have a good time while helping out. It is required that every family with skaters registered in PreSTAR, Adult Learn to Figure Skate or STARSkate to volunteer for 12 credits. Note that the volunteer requirement is by family, not by the number of skaters in the family. The volunteer roles are available for selection upon registration, and you will be able to choose a position that would best work for you. To see the list of open volunteer roles, please click here.

We also have a casino every 2-3 years, with the last one being January 2023 at Pure Casino (7055 Argyll Road). When we have a casino, we ask that all PreSTAR, Adult figure skate and STARSkate members also sign up for a casino shift so that we have a full roster of volunteers for the casino. This casino funding is extremely important to pay for our ice rental and other program expenses.

We appreciate all our volunteers!

If you do not wish to volunteer there is a volunteer buy out fee of $300 that can be purchased at registration. Note that if the volunteer commitment is not performed, the Club reserves the right to process the volunteer buyout fee at the end of the season.
