Volunteer’s are What Make it Possible!


If you would like to join our volunteers to help make our Club as successful as it can be, we a have a number of volunteer opportunities. To become a volunteer contact Lynda Westlund, Club Secretary, at aknelw@gmail.com.


Volunteer Opportunities Include


Ice Monitor


Ice Monitors are one of our most valuable volunteers. Ice

monitors duties entail:

  •  complete the skater check-in at the beginning of a session,
  •  ensure skaters have properly paid,
  •  play program music, and
  •  maintain fairness in ice priority.

Most importantly, ice monitors work in conjunction with our coaches to

ensure ice session rules are properly followed and our ice sessions are

safe. Please be courteous to and respectful of the ice monitor. Ice monitors

have the authority to remove skaters from the ice, without reimbursement, if

a skater is creating an unsafe situation or is displaying inappropriate

behavior. Anyone serving as the ice monitor should retrieve the check-in

sheet, safety vests, and wipe-off board from the rink office.
