Athletics Alberta requires club members to work a minimum of 12 volunteer hours in the membership year.
Qualifying volunteer opportunities include
- Three Calgary Track Council hosted meets (selected from the Calgary Indoor Track Series and/or the New Balance Athletic Series – Outdoor). Shifts are approximately 4 hours.
- The Calgary Spring Challenge – hosted by UCAC on the Mothers’ Day long weekend in May. Shifts are a full day or 2 half day shifts
- The Stewart Cup Cross Country – hosted by UCAC in even numbered years. Shifts are approximately a half day.
Volunteering as an Official
Volunteers will work under the supervision of a carded official and do not require prior experience. While not a requirement, UCAC encourages our members to take officiating training and Athletics Alberta offers officials’ clinics throughout the year. For those of you who would like to work towards becoming an official, visit the Officials’ Area on the Athletics Alberta website.
Club Hosted Events
To sign up, please contact our volunteer coordinator Rianne McHugh.
Get Involved with UCAC’s Board of Directors
We are always looking for club members to join our Board of Directors, providing you an opportunity to have your voice heard directly and participate in the club governance and decision making. Being a board member covers your volunteer commitment for the Calgary Track Council, but we will still need your help at the Stewart Cup and Calgary Spring Challenge. If you have any questions or express any interest in getting involved, please contact the UCAC Board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents are encouraged to act as chaperones at out of town meets. Those interested should contact their child’s coach or Doug Lamont. UCAC will determine the number of chaperones required and will pay for the accommodation and travel. Chaperones should ensure they are familiar with the Athletics Alberta Code of Conduct and Ethics and the Athletics Canada Code of Conduct and Ethics.
