Fire on Ice, our annual home meet, is taking place on Saturday, December 7. Numerous volunteers are required to make the event run smoothly. Many of the positions are the same as the Mini Meets, and there are also jobs that are specific to the meet.
We also run a Hospitality Room which serves our coaches, officials, and volunteers. We are looking for people willing to bring in food, as well as work in the hospitality room during the meet.
To sign up for these volunteer positions, please follow our Sign Up Genius link.
Don’t forget to fill in the Competition Entry Sheet with a Yes or No for Fire on Ice by going here:Meet Sign Up

This was the first big out of town meet for many of our skaters, and they had a great time! Lots of new PB’s set, and even a few medals!
Our second Mini Meet of the year is fast approaching on November 28, 2019 from 5-8. Please follow the link below to sign up for a volunteer position. Training will be provided if you are new to the job. This will be the last chance to practice positions before Fire on Ice.
