Myths vs. Reality
Who can get involved?
The SC2 is looking for interested individuals from every walk of life from youth to seniors and everyone in-between. We are especially looking for people from within Springbrook that have a background in committee work, fundraising, media and public relations, who have an interest in skateboarding or BMXing or have children that have an interest in Skateboarding or BMXing.
Roles of Volunteers
There are several roles for volunteers. The committee needs to have a full executive committee, this includes 12 members of varying backgrounds. This commitment will be meetings 2 times monthly as well as the odd special event.
Special Event Volunteers will be called upon for fundraising activities, open houses and other isolated events or tasks that the committee needs help with. Events will be on a date by date basis with no regular meetings. Volunteers can be any age and will be needed on numerous occasions to help with special events and fund raising efforts.
Input from all ages and experience levels will be needed to develop a park that is not only cool now but well into the future. Riders of all ages and abilities will be encouraged to give input into the elements and design of the Skatepark.
The Springbrook Skate park project is a grass roots community project. This means that the success of the project depends 100% on the involvement of the community. Springbrook is a growing community but being so close to Red Deer there are not the same type or amount of amenities that a similar size community would have. It’s up to us in the community to drive change and to turn Springbrook into the community we desire. This is our opportunity, with everyone on board this project will be a great success!

The SC2 has regular meetings scheduled for the first and third Thursdays of each month at 7pm at the Springbrook Fire Station. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings. We will be choosing the executive positions on February 21, 2013. There will be the regular executive positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary as well as 8 other directors that will be needed to help fill subcommittee roles and help with leadership and decision making. Youth cannot be on the executive but are encouraged to attend any and all meetings with older youth being relied upon heavily for assistance at fundraising events, open houses, special events and during the design stage.
