Parent volunteers are required to participate at the V-Rrooom Challenge (interclub meet) and at least one of the Richmond Oval sanctioned events. A minimum of 15 hours (per skater family) are required to fulfill your obligation to the Club. However, due to the evolving provincial health guidelines and restrictions our volunteer coordinator will contact you on required tasks and quantity of hours needed.

To ensure parent participation, a post-dated cheque for Volunteer Activity Deposit of $200 is required for each registered skater. Once  minimum volunteer hours reached; your deposit will be returned to you at the AGM.

Try Speed Skating

Subject to availability, we welcome anyone to come check us out during one of our practice sessions, and talk to our coaches, executives, skaters or their parents.  Should you or your child decide to try speed skating first before considering membership with our club, we can offer you one introductory session with speed skates to try the sport out.  After this one trial session, should you become interested in the sport, you could join our club and become a member

Please email info@nullrichmondrockets.org to arrange in advance an introductory trial session.
