Quechee Alpine Ski Club (a.k.a. Quechee Ski Team) is a member-driven organization, which requires a commitment by member parents to become involved in running the Club's events. These events usually include hosting one U14 race, two U10/12 races, and the U10/12 festival.
Running a safe and enjoyable event requires a large group of people working together to maintain a safe race course and organize hundreds of racers. Parent involvement is paramount for our team 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 three events or other volunteer need. 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, or other volunteer needs of the team. Please note: a parent from each family is required to be a gatekeeper at one race as one of their work commitments.
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 $125 fee for each commitment that they do not meet.
Race volunteer positions and other positions will be posted on the Quechee Alpine Ski Club website. Sign-ups will start at the beginning of the season and will be posted on the website. Reminders about commitments and information about when and where to show up for your volunteer positions will be sent by email from the Volunteer Coordinator. The earlier you sign up, the more likely you will get your position of choice.
