NTFC Volunteers

The Nanaimo Track and Field Club is a volunteer-driven organization.  Board members and all coaches are volunteers.  There are many ways that parents can help the Club and we encourage everyone to do so as best they can.   Board positions are currently open and we are always looking for experienced coaches, coach assistants or those willing to take coach training in a specific event area. 

Volunteer Policy:

A $200 volunteer hour deposit fee will be collected from each family at the beginning of the season. Each family is required to volunteer 15 hours during the spring track season. The intention is to have as many volunteers as possible. It is each family's responsibility to record their hours on our online volunteer spreadsheet.  Should a family opt out of volunteering, their cheque will be deposited.
