Volunteering

Peaks Figure Skating Club

Volunteer Service Form

PFSC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit association.

Your donations are tax exempt.

The Peaks Figure Skating Club is organized and operated solely by the generous efforts of our volunteers. It takes an amazing amount of time and energy to fulfill the many obligations and activities of the Club. Most people find it interesting and fun to get involved in the club. You meet many people and learn a lot about the “behind the scenes” of the sport. All members of the Peaks Figure Skating Club are expected to volunteer in some capacity. Families of skaters & professional members must volunteer a minimum of 10 hours during the July-June Skating Season (of course, we encourage you to volunteer as much over the limit as you can).

 Members may opt out by paying a $100.00 donation in lieu of volunteering (single family member).  Associate members must also volunteer 10 hours or pay $100.00 to opt out.  Your time and efforts make a difference! The success and growth of the club depends on each family being committed and supporting the club through volunteer hours.

Special Discount – Members who exceed the annual requirement in service hours will get a discount towards the next season’s membership fees (minus USFSA fee) at a rate of 1.00 per hour of service exceeding 20 hours, up to $20.00 maximum at 40 volunteer hours.  Associate Club members receive the same discount.  Club Officers and Board Chair members will be exempt from the first 20 hours, but must complete additional hours over 20 to receive their discount.  Members who do not meet the minimum requirement of volunteer service hours will be assessed $10.00 for each hour of volunteer service requirement that was not fulfilled.

The PFSC Board of Directors consists of nine positions: four Officers and five Board Members. The four Officers are the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary. (These are the people who must sign your test and competition forms). The five remaining Board Members may also assume any of the standing committee positions listed.
