Ushers:

Ushers will escort skaters, coaches, and chaperones at their designated times into the designated areas in the rink for their event or practice session. The Ushers will then escort the groups out of the building. One usher must stay with the chaperones at all times. There will be at least one usher per group of chaperones and at least one usher for the skaters and coaches for each event. Minimum age: 16

Registration:

At the registration desk you will be the first person to interact with the athlete when they arrive for our competition.

Volunteers will also need to be checked in. You will need to answer or field questions. Must  be comfortable using computers and tablets.

Awards:

In Awards you will announce the names of the medalists and present them with their awards. There will be no group pictures due to Covid-19 protocol. Parents may take pictures of their individual athlete if they wish.
This is a good area for parents with younger children to work in together.
