Volunteering & Fundraising

The Medicine Hat Skating Club is a non-profit organization. To provide our club members with quality instruction at a reasonable price, it is necessary to fundraise. All money raised through fundraising activities goes directly into the club. Monies are used to help mitigate ice and coaching costs, purchase equipment, awards, and host special events. 

While we realize that parents can be overloaded with fundraising commitments from schools and other sports organizations but fundraising is vital to the operation of our Club, therefore, we have given families an option to participate or buy out of their obligations. Should you choose to buy out and change your mind we would be more than happy to accept any assistance we can get.

50/50 Raffle

The 50/50 is added right on your registration form. There are 2 options:
 1) Pay upfront $100/family for your book of tickets. You will initial that you have received a book of tickets that you can either try and sell to reimburse yourself or write your own name on the tickets. Once you have filled out all the tickets in your book, you must then return to the office and initial that you have returned them. At the end of the skating year, we will draw for a winner for half of the total earnings received.
 2) Pay for the opt-out option, which is $75. This means you do not have to participate in 50/50.

BINGO

The Medicine Hat Skating Club offers a chance to build a bursary account in your families name. Once you have completed your required volunteer commitment, you are able to work Bingo(s), where $50.00 will be added to your personal account for every bingo worked. This money can be used to put towards registration fees, coach fees and test day fees. You can work a bingo at any time if you wish, as this is a huge contributor to help to keep our program fees down, but the bursary only comes into play when your regular commitment is done. If you are interested in working a Bingo please contact the Club office at 403-529-0092.
