Fundraising is a necessary component to keeping the costs of our programs down, making it affordable for families.
There are a minimum number of volunteer credits that must be completed by May 2019. A cheque in the amount of $250 for STARSkate Prep and $350 for STARSkate will need to be submitted upon registering for our programs and will only be cashed if your volunteer commitments have not been completed.
Star Skate Prep = Requires 6 credits ($250 volunteer cheque)
Star Skate = Requires 12 credits ($350 volunteer cheque)
Competitive Star Skaters = Requires 12 credits ($350 volunteer cheque)
Fundraising is an opportunity to have your child participate in a fun, team building activity that helps to raise funds to off-set skating costs for families. The ASC uses our portion of funds raised through such events to off-set admin costs, pay for on and off-ice equipment and provide skill building opportunities for our athletes. You will see in the Volunteering & Fundraising plan that the activities that earn credits towards your volunteer requirements are highlighted.
You will also see some optional fundraising detailed. These are arranged by the club and skating participants will receive 70% of the total profits which will be credited into the member account.
Participation in fundraising is mandatory for the families of each skater in the STARSkate Prep and STARSkate programs. If a family has more than one skater in either of these programs, a fundraising commitment is required for each skater. A mandatory fundraising cheque, dated for December 1st of that year, is required for every STARSkate Prep or STARSkater at the time of registration. If the cheque is not received before the first day of skating, the skater will not be allowed to step on the ice.
The amount of the fundraising deposit cheque will be set annually by the Board. If families meet the mandatory fundraising initiative, the cheque will not be cashed on February 1st. The cheque will only be cashed if you choose not to participate or you do not complete the fundraising requirements as outlined. Examples of past club fundraisers include casinos, raffles or competitions. Families may also meet their fundraising requirements by volunteering in various capacities. These volunteer opportunities will be determined by the Board on an annual basis.
Skaters who join ASC part way through the year will have their fundraising commitment pro-rated.
Skaters who are moved up from CanSkate to STARSkate Prep in January will be exempt from the fundraising requirement for that season.
