Quechee Alpine Ski Club is a member driven organization, which requires a commitment by member parents to help run ski team events. These events usually include hosting two U10/U12 level races, one U14 level race, and one Mountain Team race.
Running a safe and enjoyable event requires a large group of volunteers to maintain a safe race course and organize hundreds of racers. Parent involvement is paramount for Quechee to accomplish these goals.
Parents are expected to contribute their time to organize and run these events. The expectation is that each family will volunteer for a minimum of one to three events or positions based on the team in which your child participates. The volunteer jobs include gate judge, race registration, course maintenance during races, set up and clean up, helping to run the timing, helping at the start or the finish, filming racers, writing for the newsletter, or other functions which the club needs to perform.
Once you have signed up for a work position you must see that the work is completed. If your plans change and you are not available to work, it is your responsibility to find another parent to cover your work commitment. It is very likely that you will volunteer to work at an event in which your child is not even racing. Families who fail to complete their full work requirement will be assessed a $150 fee at the completion of the season.
Work requirements will vary based on your child?s team. If you have more than one child in the program the requirement is that of the highest required team.
U16, U18, U21 Team Family 1 work position
Mountain Team Family 2 work positions
U10, U12, 14 Team Family 3 work positions
Work positions will be posted on the website for you to review. Sign ups will start at the beginning of the season and will be accomplished by e-mailing the Event Coordinator. The earlier you sign up, the more likely you will get your position of choice.
Please remember the parents coordinating these jobs and events are volunteers as well. Make their jobs easier by being proactive in volunteering your time.
