Mandatory Fundraising Requirement

Ice costs for our private skaters are subsidized to keep skating affordable. The fundraising allows us to do so. Gateway Skating Club requires each family to fulfil a Bingo Shift within the skating year (The skating year is from September 2022-April 2023). Contact for inquiries.

Bingo dates are:

2022:  Monday, November 28 Monday, December 5    
2023: Wednesday, January 11 Wednesday, February 22 Saturday, March 4  


Mandatory Volunteer Requirement

Volunteering is required to be able to keep our club running smoothly. Gateway Skating Club requires each family to fulfil volunteer hours. How many hours are required depends on what level your skater is.

The following table specifies the number of credits for the skater level, for the 2022-2023 season.
