Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer Application

As with any non-profit organization, we rely on volunteers. An annual volunteer fee of $250.00 is charged to every athlete OR family (if applicable) involved in our programs who is over the age of 8. In order to receive a refund of this fee, each athlete OR family must complete a minimum of 20 volunteer hours. Athletes/families are required to volunteer at our annual manure sale. Hours logged as an official do not count towards your volunteer hours. 

Opportunities for volunteering are available at our track meets, but are also needed at other times throughout the year.  Committing to an ongoing volunteer positions is also an option. We appreciate the support!

Current Volunteer Opportunities

    • BOARD MEMBERS – Are you interested in becoming a Board Member? Come out and contribute to the growth and development of our Club! No experience is necessary. The only requirement is passion. 
    • CLUB SECRETARY – We are seeking a Club Secretary who can attend board meetings once a month, create an agenda and record meeting minutes. 
    • URGENT – PHOTO FINISH/Hy-Tek IT ASSISTANT(S) – We are looking for a few people to assist Brian Beck and Diane Weddell with the photo finish and Hy-Tek software system. At times, we run into technical issues with the cameras. We also need the general assistance for set up and take down of the equipment. Additionally, we are seeking to train a few more individuals to be able to run the technical aspects of a track meet in the event that Brian and Diane are unavailable. Ideally, this person would have IT skills, however, we are willing to train and the Club will pay for training sessions. In order to continue offering meets for our athletes, and to prepare for next year, we require this additional support.
    • EQUIPMENT MANGAGER – We are searching for someone who enjoys fixing and maintaining equipment – a go to person. We need to be “competition ready” when its necessary and not find surprises with equipment. This may require you to either fix or have someone fix equipment. This does not involve a lot of volunteer hours, but it requires someone to be familiar with what equipment we do have and how to keep it in working order.

       

    • TRACK RASCAL VOLUNTEER PARENT – We are looking for a parent who would be interested in helping the club during the Track Rascals  program. We are needing a parent to be on site in the event that a child has to use the washroom, needs attention etc. so that time is not taken away from the coaches and their duties.
