Service Hours

The Greater Green Bay Figure Skating Club requires nearly 10,000 service hours per year from its membership to operate its activities and events.  As part of the membership requirements, all club members are required to fulfill annual service hours to help support and grow club membership.

Full and Introductory GGBFSC members are required to complete each of the three requirements for Service Hours listed below.

  1. Volunteer five hours at required events (Skate Green Bay, Camps, Spring Show)
  2. Volunteer an additional 12 hours for full and introductory members.  The additional 12 hour requirement can be waived if one of the following are completed.
  • Serve on a GGBFSC committee
    • Testing Committee
    • Spring Show Committee
    • Community Outreach
    • Holiday Exhibition Committee
    • Marketing Committee
    • Skate Green Bay Committee
    • Spring Banquet Committee
    • Welcoming Committee
  • Opt out by paying $20 per hour

In addition to the Service Hour requirements above, all members, including associate members, who contract ice will be required to complete mandatory ice monitor/music playing hours.  Members are required to complete four hours in fall and four hours in spring. ICE MONITORING DOES NOT COUNT TOWARDS THE 12 ADDITIONAL HOURS/COMMITTEE REQUIREMENT.

  • What do I do with the Ice Monitoring emails?
    • First of all, Thank you for volunteering as Ice Monitor for the GGBFSC (Greater Green Bay Figure Skating Club). We rely on volunteers to keep the ice open and safe for our skaters. Thank you for helping us. To ensure a safe and enjoyable time for all, and that your volunteer time is counted, please do the following as noted with the roster sheets email, you only need to reply with one email at the end of your session to note which skaters were present/absent for your session. Since we no longer have the paper for you to sign this reply is how your volunteer hour is documented.
      • Your reply should read:
        • “all skaters present for the _____ session on __(date)____” and sign with your + your skater´s name… and sign with your + your skater´s name. “all skaters except _________ were present for the ____ session __(date)___” … and sign with your + your skater´s name. 
  • Skater participation in certain events may also require service hour(s) be performed.  For example, GGBFSC test sessions require volunteer hours for those participating.  See member handbook for complete details.

    All members, including associate and collegiate, may be assessed volunteer hours if the club hosts a Regional, Sectional or National USFS event.
