Would you like to Volunteer?

The Dartmouth Skating Club is run by a dedicated group of volunteers that sit on the Club Executive but there are many ways to help out during the year. CanSkate relies on Program Assistants to help run the sessions and events such as the Rob McCall Memorial competition and Christmas show require the help from many people to ensure they run smoothly.
