OPPORTUNITIES TO GET WORK CREDIT

Southkent Sportsmen’s Club relies on volunteers to maintain our ranges & facilities.
Each member can earn up to $60 work credit towards their dues the following year. Each hour of volunteer work is valued at $15, up to the 4 hour/$60 mark… but there is no need to stop at 4, help out as much as you can.

Scheduled Work Days

Our primary method of getting work credit is to help us on our schedule work days March – October. See the club calendar HERE for the schedule.

We realize that not everyone is able to make schedules work or do the physical labor tasks we often have available during our regularly scheduled Work Days. To offer additional opportunities outside scheduled work days, we have identified some tasks you can do to help the club:

  • Manager's Assistant
    • SKSC is open to the public on Tuesday’s & Thursday’s 6:00 pm to 10:00 PM and Sunday’s 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. You can volunteer to help the club manager with tasks like scoring Trap/Skeet & moderate housekeeping tasks in the clubhouse. To sign up, call the on duty manager during regular open hours. 616 681-2485.
  • Club Monitor (Seniors Only)
    • This option was developed to give seniors an opportunity to help monitor the ranges on your own schedule. This task requires no physical labor and helps keep our ranges safe. The Club Monitor duty will be available to interested individuals after a brief orientation on the process & duties. To sign up, Email president@sksc.org to set up an orientation.
  • Empty Range Trash Cans
    • To sign up, call David Washburn (after 5:00 pm only) to schedule a time that works for you. 616 893-1427
  • Unsupervised Grounds Maintenance Tasks
    • Our Facilities & Ranges Committees generally have a long list of tasks to keep the club safe & looking good. We will have specific tasks available that individuals can do on their own time. There will be a box with task tickets posted outside the clubhouse. It will be up to the individual to pick the ticket, complete the task, and drop the ticket into the drop box. Additionally, it will be the individual’s responsibility to come into the club house during regular open hours to have the on-duty manager sign off on the work credit. To sign up, call the on-duty manager during open hours for additional details. 616 681-2485
