At NGCC we include a $30 volunteer fee as part of your registration costs, so each time you register for Mini Soccer, Hockey, Basketball, Softball and Baseball you pay this fee. The money collected from this fee is paid back to parents that volunteer – for a 2 hour shift, we mail you a cheque for $30.
Unfortunately, many parents just pay the fee and don’t volunteer their time, but we just want to point out that showing your children that volunteering at your community centre is important and worthwhile! It plants a seed in them for future opportunities that come from volunteering and can teach them valuable lessons about giving back to their community.
At NGCC you can volunteer for the Pre-Teen dances that we host (usually in February and October), our annual Christmas/Holiday event (usually the second Sunday in December) and at our biggest event of the year held on the first Friday in June, our Knight of Celebration! We also run our canteens at different times of the year.
