Volunteer Hours

Previously, Northern Blades NSC Figure Skating Club has manually entered and tracked all members volunteer hours, but, starting now, we have found a way for members to track, monitor and record their own hours. The website is called Track if Forward and it allows you, the member, to enter and track your volunteer hours. It is very simple to use and you can even download an app right on your phone! No more filling out paperwork and hoping at the end of the year, that all of your hours were recorded. No more wondering how many hours you have left to complete.
