Club Volunteer Commitment

This Club like most clubs cannot run without many parents volunteering their time and energy with all aspects of the Club organization and site maintenance. Our Club Program fees can only continue as one of the lowest at Mt Washington with this support from our parents. This Club is as good as you make it. The more involvement we have from parents the stronger the club will get. There are many opportunities to volunteer both on snow and off. We request an average of one hour per weekend assisting with site maintenance (as needed). Please check in with the head coach or volunteer coordinator each weekend when you drop off your child to see if any assistance is needed. Further information will be available at registration.

We require a post-dated cheque (dated March 31, 2017) from each Club Family for $100. This is a returnable cheque; the cheque will not be cashed if the Volunteer Commitment is completed.

Cheques payable to MWFC
