Volunteer at your club!

Volunteer of the Year nominations sought!
Do you know a TCOTC member who goes above and beyond? Someone who puts in extra time and effort to help with trials or other events? Or someone who is extra-helpful at the front desk or with their students? Then nominate that person for 2017 Volunteer of the Year! Our winner will be announced and recognized at our Annual Banquet in February. Send your nominations to anneschenk@tcotc.com.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of TCOTC. From setting up for trials or the staffing the front desk to assistant teaching or serving on the board, there is a volunteer opportunity for you. It’s a great way to get involved in your club and learn more about dog training and dog sports. And, in some cases, you can earn free classes!

One-time and ongoing opportunities to volunteer happen year-round. Ask at the front desk or check here often to see what our current needs are.

Current volunteer opportunities:

Front Desk/Customer Service: Duties include checking in students for class, processing registrations and payments, and retail sales. Training is provided. Familiarity with computers and retail or customer service experience is a plus. This position earns credit toward training classes!

Agility Course Set-Up Crew: Most Sunday evenings. Crew meets for 1-2 hours to set up the agility course for the upcoming week of classes. Perks include being able to bring your dog to run the course.

Ongoing Activities: Monday and Wednesday Days. Help with cleaning, equipment organizing, etc.

Other volunteer opportunities:

  • Trials and Tournaments: assist with set-up and clean-up as well as during the trial
  • Club Maintenance Crew: help with cleaning, painting, minor repairs
  • Publicity and Outreach: help with TCOTC’s marketing and public outreach activities

If you would like to help with these or other club activities, contact Anne Schenk at anneschenk@tcotc.com or ask your instructor next time you are at the club!
