VOLUNTEERING

We need your help... Volunteers are an essential ingredient for running our competitions and supporting our
skaters. Becoming a volunteer is easy—you can complete the volunteer form and return it with your
membership application. The competition chairs also send out volunteer sign-ups a few weeks out from
competitions.  Most opportunities do not require previous experience, so don’t worry if you don’t know how to
ice monitor or run the music. Once we receive your application or sign-up, you will be contacted by our
extraordinary volunteer coordinator to discuss events where you can fulfill your 10-hour volunteer requirement.
Please check the PSC website for volunteer opportunities. You can also contact our PSC Membership Chair for
more information.

 

We are always looking for parents and interested parties to fill head organizational positions, like test chairs,
membership chairs, competition chairs. These people are in charge of running these club functions and are
integral to our success!
