Volunteer Commitment

The Banff/Canmore Speed Skating Club has a minimum volunteer requirement for families and individuals involved in the club.  It is based on a time commitment and is administered by a volunteer bond.  The operation of the Banff/Canmore Speed Skating program depends heavily upon the volunteer efforts of our members and we greatly appreciate all of our member’s volunteer time!  Those who cannot contribute time will have to pay the bond in lieu of volunteer work at the end of the season.
