Welcome to our 2021/2022 Fundraising Information Page

 
Like any other non-profit organization we try desperately to keep our registration fees manageable. As such, the fees that we charge do not quite cover the costs of the programs. Therefore we have asked that each family commit to fundraising on behalf of their skater.
 
We use a fundraising point system which offers families options and flexibility. 
 
Fundraising expectations are as follows:
  • Jumpstart, Junior & STARSkate - $250 in fundraising or 25 points
  • CanSkate, KidSkate, PreCanPowerSkate - no mandatory fundraising, option to fundraise to reduce program fees up to a maximum of 5 points per day per session. For example, if your skater is registered in Monday Canskate for both the Fall and Winter sessions, they can earn up to 10 points, which equals a $100 reduction in program fees.
  • Casinos- we host a casino once every 3 years. In those years, Jumpstart, Junior, and STARskate families are expected to commit to sending one family member or friend to volunteer 1 shift at the Casino. THIS IS A CASINO YEAR! Casinos are super important to our Club as the money raised pays a significant portion of our ice fees for 3 years.
 
While we have not yet finalized our fundraising for the year we anticipate that it will be very similar to what was done last year which is outlined below.

Door Prizes/ Silent Auction Items (only if we are able to host a Carnival this year)

We look to our skate families to help us find silent auction items and door prizes for our event fundraiser as well as our end of year Carnival. Bring in your item and we will have it count towards your fundraising for the year!
  
 
Cash My Cheque
While fundraising is an important part of our work as a non-profit organization, we also understand that you may not be interested in fundraising or cannot commit the time and would rather just pay the difference. Just let us know. 
 
Short On Points? 
If you reach the end of skating season and you have tried your best but did not make the point requirement- do not worry! You can purchase the points you need for $10 ea.
