Volunteering & Fundraising with Whistler Gymnastics
Like most gymnastics clubs in this province and across Canada, Whistler Gymnastics is a non-profit Society that depends on the volunteer efforts and fundraising of its members to function efficiently. Whistler Gymnastics has a volunteer program to ensure optimal use of time so our coaches can focus on the kids and keep program fees affordable.
We welcome all individuals who would like to help and volunteer. Competitive families are required to volunteer, as has been the case for many years with Whistler Gymnastics. For a more effective and equitable system we are redefining the terms of commitment for the competitive and pre-competitive families.
At the beginning of each season there is lots that need to get done to get the gym ready including the BIG CLEAN! Track your volunteer hours in the volunteer binder that is kept at the front desk and in return we will put a credit on your account for helping out. If you have a professional or trades skill, rates can be negotiated on an individual basis for you to work off your hours.
Volunteer opportunities necessary to operate the club will be communicated and posted prior to the various events and may include the following:
- Cleaning the Gym (mirrors, windows and mats)
- Administrative Duties
- Equipment Maintenance
- Registration Support
- Marketing and Communications
- Board of Directors
- Front desk duty
- Legal support
- Class Captains
In addition to the volunteer program, fundraising is an integral part of Whistler Gymnastics to keep fees as low as possible. The continues to pursue fundraising open to them. Whistler Gymnastics Club is also actively seeking private and corporate support in the form of sponsorship and donations. Any expertise in its parent body to assist in new and better ways to secure financial support is welcomed!
