Competition Manual: Ice Committee/Facilities Chair

The Ice Committee is responsible for things that go on inside the rink.  The largest number of day-of volunteers are usually the runners and ice monitors. Some of these volunteers will be junior members.  It is important that volunteers in this area are familiar with their job, and know their work schedule ahead of time, and are well trained.

  • Prior to event, communicates with rink about ice schedules (ice cuts, competition schedule)
  • Communicate with rink about facilities – rest rooms, locker rooms, glass panels that need to be raised, etc. Some of these requests need to go directly to the rink manager; others (like hockey glass raised) should go through the ice technician
  • Ensures that all headsets are working to enable smooth communication between ice monitors, referee, registration, announcing, music, and accountant.  Purchases additional batteries if necessary.
  • Recruits and trains ice monitors and runners. Runners can be youth skaters but they must be responsible. Ice monitors need to be able to effectively communicate with referee/announcer and with the registration desk about skaters who are absent or present.
  • Prints out signage for locker rooms and other areas in the rink
  • Coordinate volunteers for setup or tear down
