Hollyburn Cross Country Ski Club

VOLUNTEERING

Hollyburn Cross Country Ski Club depends on parents to run and operate the Club. We need coaches of all levels. New coaches are partnered with experienced coaches. You'll have fun and improve your ski technique by attending our free certification course and regular upgrade clinics. We also need parents to help with many non-skiing jobs. Join our fun-loving group of volunteers! Share your knowledge and enthusiasm!


Important Note 

At least one parent/guardian from each family is expected to volunteer for a position. The time required should be no more than a few hours over the course of the season. Consider volunteering as a coach, race/event volunteer or other club position.

The club understands that many of our families are unavailable to volunteer, so this year we have implemented a volunteer fee. If you are unable to help out this year then please check the 'unable to volunteer box' and you will be charged $75.00 at the time of registration.


 Coaches receive:

  • Free training in coaching and skiing skills or officiating
  • Free upgrade courses for returning coaches
  • Registration discount
  • Discounted pre-purchased (from Cypress) session trail passes valid for instructional days for coaches (responsible for own equipment rental)
  • Registration priority (early registration)

The types of volunteers that we are looking for include:

  • Coaches
  • Session Coordinators
  • Assistant Program Coordinator
  • Group Assistants
  • Assistants for Session Coordinators
  • Fundraising
  • Club Equipment Maintenance
  • Special Events Committee
  • Volunteer Coordinator
  • Race Committee (Officiating)

Have a look at the Other Club Positions page for brief descriptions of these and other positions. For the upcoming ski season, we are in particular seeking a new Volunteer Coordinator and Fundraising. Contact us at info@hollyburnxc.ca if you have any questions about these positions or are interested in helping.

Volunteering as a coach or session coordinator qualifies your family for early registration and a discount on the registration fee total. In addition to the selected program sessions, new coaches will also be required to attend two training courses and all coaches are expected to attend a pre-season meeting and refresher sessions. Please see the Coaches page for dates and further details. Since the registration limits are partly based on the number of coaches available, please verify your availability before signing up as a coach.

To volunteer, please add your name as another individual (member) and complete the volunteer section on the Zone4 online registration when you are registering your child.

If you are unsure of how you might help, please e-mail the club and be sure to list your telephone number. We would love to discuss with you where you can be of assistance. Also have a look at our volunteering FAQs for more information.
