Sunset Skating Club is a not-for-profit, volunteer run organization. As a parent, you hold special membership for the underage active members of the Sunset Skating Club, and your participation is vital to ensuring that the skating program is successful and registration fees are kept reasonable.

Families of Junior Development skaters are asked to contribute ONE HOUR of volunteer time during the skating year (September 2019 to August 2020). No volunteer bond is required.

Families of Junior Star/StarSkate, Intermediate, and Senior skaters are asked to contribute a minimum of THIRTY FIVE HOURS PER FAMILY of volunteer time during each skating year (September 2019 to August 2020) OR a cash donation in the amount of $200 per family. The $200 will be charged in advance of the skating year in the form of a volunteer bond. NOTE: Skaters' volunteer time (i.e. PA, participation in the Skate-a-Thon or ice show, etc.) cannot be applied towards the volunteer time requirement.

Upon registration:
  • An invoice for the Volunteer Bond must be paid before registration can proceed
  • If the required hours are met by your family, you will be refunded the volunteer bond at the beginning of the fall 2020 season.
