Why does the Tri Area Skating Club require Fundraising?
The Tri Area Skating Club (TASC) is a small, volunteer-based, Not-for-Profit organization that provides Skate Canada programs instructed by professional, certified coaches. The Executive committee is a team of elected parent volunteers whose focus is to keep the club financially sound & running successfully for years to come.
Dedicated parent volunteers are vital and are the foundation to which the club flourishes. The last few years have been extremely hard on all organizations & families financially speaking, and costs continue to increase year over year. Fundraising is a very important component of keeping our club running smoothly, effectively & keeping the overall costs of ice fees lowered for all members & helps to subsidize special events such as Ice Shows, Family Skate, Mini Competitions, etc. The ice fees charged only covers a portion of the overall operating costs. In this day & age of rising ice & supply costs, especially during the COVID-19 Pandemic, this is one way we can ensure that we are able to continue operating your local skating program & subsidize your ice fees.
Thank you all for your dedication to helping maintain a quality program for our children.
