We are proud to announce that we are a fundraising club with Skater Accounts! This will give you a chance to earn a portion of your fundraising proceeds that can be applied to future registrations. As a non-Profit Organization we rely on fundraising to help us upgrade, replace and maintain all materials within the club. We also use the proceeds to acquire new items and and allow proper training and recognition for all of our skaters off of the ice.
All skaters registered in the club will acquire an account where they have the opportunity to earn funds that can be applied to future Skating. Skaters and families are not forced to fundraise, but are encouraged to take part in our program.
Skating credits are earned through fundraising. The skater will earn 50% of their fundraising which will be applied to their account that's held by the Abbotsford Skating Club. The other 50% will be given to the Abbotsford Skating Club to use as they deem necessary. In the past funds have been applied towards a new sound system, Skater of the month program, skater, coach and board education, test and simulation days, awards etc. Ice Shows and Club hosted events such as competitions are excluded from this program.
Abbotsford Skating Club operates solely due to the volunteer efforts of its members. If you are interested in ensuring that the Abbotsford Skating Club runs to the best of its ability, please don’t hesitate to come forward and ask anyone on the current executive, or a coach, how you can get involved. No task is too small and everyone is welcome!
To showcase our skaters, we will be staging our annual Ice show at MSA Arena on April 6, 2019.The week following up to this date is reserved for practices and rehearsals. There will be a dress rehearsal in the morning of, then a matinee and evening performance. Skaters of every level are encouraged to participate. It is the highlight of the season for most of our skaters! They look forward to preforming together and putting on a great show. In order for the ice show to be a success it requires the community effort of all families of skaters who are involved in the show. As in past years, the expectation is that each family will provide a $50.00 post-dated commitment cheque, which will be returned upon the completion of a minimum of 4-8 hours of volunteer service towards the show. It's a fun event for everyone involved in our Club!
