Board of Directors: The board is responsible for the overall management of the club. Individual members have duties such as hiring professional coaches, setting the budget, obtaining ice, scheduling programs, setting policy and procedure, and planning events.
Chairs: Some members of the Board lead committees to accomplish specific jobs. For example, the Fundraising Chair will lead a committee to plan and put on Fundraising events. Test chair will organize and run the test day.
Committee Members: For many committees, any member of the club can join in and help with planning, organization etc of a specific area (for example, Special Events).
Event Volunteers: every event needs people to come out and help, including our day to day sessions which require a session chairperson to assist with set up, take down, badge distribution, tying of skates etc.
Session Coordinators: Assist with session operations and effective communication with session membership.
The club board is comprised of ‘volunteers’. As we are a non-profit organization run by volunteer club members, everyone needs to take part and help in some capacity.
Professional Coaches: Coaches are invaluable in the development of an athlete’s skills. They are teachers and mentors for the thousands of young athletes they interact within their day-to-day work. They work not only with athletes but also the athlete’s parents in setting realistic goals and the training required to reach their potential and their goals. All Skate Canada coaches are required to be trained and/or certified in the National Coaches Certification Program (NCCP).
