Good luck to all skaters competing in the 2017 Eastern Divisionals at Jack Byrne Arena, January 21-22! Here’s a checklist to help you prepare for the weekend.

Competition Checklist

Volunteers Needed!!

We need your help! Ice captains, runners, medal presenters, door attendants, registration desk, playing music and announcers are required for January 21- 22, Jack Byrne Arena, Torbay.

Sign up for as many sessions as you can. Click on the links in the activities below for the schedule. Shifts are 90 minutes, except music and announcing which are 4 hours.

Playing music and announcing skaters are activities that require consistency. If you can commit to one time slot each day, this would go a long way in helping us ensure the competition runs smoothly.

Ice captains ensure skaters are in and out of dressing rooms in allotted time schedules, and waiting in proper areas at rink-side.

Door attendants collect admission fees throughout the event.

Registration desk attendants register skaters for the competition, take music and give out loot bags. WE WILL NEED 2 PER SHIFT.

Runners monitor various areas/activities to help out those assigned and to give any messages to other volunteers. This is a great activity for the skaters! Talk to your competitors about helping out :-)

Medal presentations will be ongoing throughout the weekend. Volunteers are needed to coordinate medal presentations and present to skaters.

We will be asking individuals throughout the weekend to sell 50/50 tickets. This is a way for POWSC to offset the costs of hosting this competition. The more we sell, the better for the club and the lucky winner. We haven’t set a schedule for this activity and will rely on volunteers and skaters (this is one of their favourite tasks) throughout the weekend.
