CALL FOR INTERESTED PROGRAM ASSISTANTS (PAS)
posted Sep 27, 2022, 12:39 PM
Again this year Program Assisting is OPTIONAL for skaters at our club. We are aware that some skaters would like to help out and we are excited to hear from them!!!
We will be taking up to 6 PAs on CanSkate and 8 on PreCanSkate. This is a volunteer role, and no credits will be awarded toward future registration.
If you are interested in being a PA on any session (see regular season schedule for times on the club website under “News”) please send a note along to Joanne Burry at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the session(s) you are interested in and the reason you would like to do it, priority will be given to those needing career hours so it is not a first come first serve. Deadline to submit requests to PA is Oct 5th.
PAs must be 12 years of age and passed the complete Star 4 freeskate test.
Also note that we will have an off-ice PA clinic Tuesday Oct. 11 5:45-6:45 at the Paradise arena. This is mandatory for anyone wanting to PA and it will be the ONLY option to do the clinic.
We are excited to hear from you!!! ⛸
