Fundraising & Volunteer Opportunities
*Volunteer hours are back for the 2022-2023 season
1st child enrolled in skating:
Canskate = 10 hours or $200 buy out
Shooting Stars = 15 hours or $300 buy out
Junior, Intermediate and Senior = 20 hours or $400 buy out
Subsequent children enrolled in skating = 5 hours of volunteer time (or buyout of $150)
You will see a $150 fee on your registration this season for the Basket of Cheer fundraiser. This covers your first 30 tickets. As you sell your tickets you keep the monies gathered…therefore, if you sell all of your tickets you aren’t out any money. Any tickets sold above this counts as volunteer hours - 2 hours for each additional book sold. Also, 1 volunteer hour is available per skater for a booze donation. Monies will be collected for any additional books sold during set times during our sessions. This is a very important fundraiser for us and helps us to not have to increase prices yearly.
Belonging to the Board and any work of the Board does constitute volunteer hours. Please consider joining us!
If you choose the Volunteer Option your authorization will be withdrawn March 29, 2023 if volunteer hours are not completed. If you choose the buyout option your payment will be received at the beginning of the season.
Fundraising is really important for the existence of the M.A.A.A. (Meaford Skating Club). In order to keep registration costs down, we have to all pull together and do our part to fundraise each year to offset projected deficits.
Here are a few of our major fundraisers that you can help with;
• Annual Apple Harvest Craft Show – October 2022
• Basket of Cheer Lotto – fall fundraiser. Each parent sells tickets/provides product. Volunteer hours will be awarded – 2 hours for each book of 20 tickets sold & 1 hour for alcohol donation. October to December 2022
• Lutz Skate Fun Competition February 2023
- Ice Show - March 2023
