2019/2020 Volunteer information
2019/2020 Olds Rapids Volunteering Commitment
As a small, friendly organization, Olds Rapids Swim Club relies on parent volunteers.Don't run away! It is FUN being involved, it keeps you connected with your child's swim experience and allows you to connect with new families and donate your valuable time to an amazing cause!
Olds Rapids Swim Club does not ever fundraise for the sake of fundraising! All money brought in through fundraising goes to pay our wonderful coaches and pool rental fees. Our most profitable and stable source of income is our monthly bingos (Red Deer Bingo Centre). We are required to provide 10 people per bingo to receive our full percentage of money taken in (this varies depending on money made that day). Our goal this year is to ensure that each bingo roster is full!
The board has also determined that we will need an additional major fundraiser this year and have chosen a raffle.
The volunteer requirements for the 2019-2020 are as follows:
Bingo is an important part of our annual fundraising each year to keep fees lower for everyone. The 2019/2020 Bingo requirements are in addition to the Raffle requirement.
-If you are swimming short course only ( Sept 2019-April 2020) the requirement is 2 Bingo credits per swimmer and $200 in raffle tickets
-If you are swimming short course and long course ( Sept 2019-June 2020) the requirement is 3 Bingo credits per swimmer and $200 in raffle tickets
-If you are swimming long course only (April 2020-June 2020) the requirement is 1 Bingo credit per swimmer* As the raffle is planned for November 30, 2019, the board will determine at a later time if an additional fundraiser is needed for long course.
2 bond cheques will be required. The Raffle bond cheque will be $200 dated November 30, 2019. The Bingo bond cheque for short course will be $300 dated April 30, 2020 and the Full year Bingo bond cheque will be $450 dated June 30, 2020
