The Mississauga Figure Skating Club is a non-profit corporation run by its members. Every May, the Club holds a General meeting of the members. Every year, a group steps forward to volunteer to act as the Board of Directors. These Directors donate their personal time to run the club for the benefit of all members and skaters. They are responsible for renting ice, programming the skating sessions, hiring coaches and managing relations with the City of Mississauga, Skate Canada and other organizations.
However, the board members alone cannot do all the necessary work. Everyone needs to contribute some of their time so that we all enjoy the benefits of belonging to a figure skating club. We require all Starskate families to volunteer 5 hours per skater per season (maximum 10 hours per family).
As well, in order to subsidize the Club’s programs, the cost of ice rental and special events, the club relies heavily upon running bingos throughout the year with the help of its members. We require all StarSkate families to volunteer for two bingos per skater per season (maximum 4 bingos per family).
The club also runs fundraising events from time to time, such as sale of Club wear and Bowling evenings. We hope our memberships will support these activities.
The financial assistance of corporate sponsors is also vital. These funds enable us to keep the costs of our programs down. Assistance in finding sponsors is also greatly appreciated.
Please take an active role in supporting our club by fulfilling your bingo and volunteer duties (StarSkate members), supporting our fundraisers and helping us finding sponsors for our club. Without everyone's help, youth programs like the one MFSC provides to Mississauga residents would not be possible.
Thank you to all for your support!
Like many other youth organizations in the city of Mississauga, MFSC participates in the Bingo Program in order to help subsidize the cost of running our programs. Revenues from this program enable us to keep our registration and session fees at a competitive level.
