Summer Ice Monitor Sign-up
It was brought to the boards attention that we need to have an adult watching any skater under 18. The Park Districts policy is "For any skater under the age of 18, there must be an Adult (18 or older) to watch them." There was a discussion on how the club can best meet this policy during the summer ice but no motion was made. Our next chance of discussing this issue will be at our board meeting onJune 8, 2015 at the Icon Arena in the BLC room. I'm hoping that we can fill our Ice Monitoring hours with volunteers instead of hiring out this position. This will help keep our ice costs down in the future. At this time, the Border Blades Coaches have agreed to be the "Ice Monitor" during the 6:00am - 7:45am time slot, to help us out.
If you plan on being at the rink to watch your child, please consider volunteering to be an Ice Monitor during that time. This would really help our skaters that have parents that are unable to watch their skater on the ice due to their work schedules. At this time, the Ice Monitor's job will be to watch the skaters and make sure that they are skating safely and call help if needed. This is a work in progress, so I welcome any suggestions you may have to help the board solve this issue and keep our skaters safe.
If you have NOT filled your volunteer hours for the year, this is a great opportunity to fulfill your requirement. Remember our volunteer requirement is 5 hours per skater or you will be assessed a $40 per hour charge. Border Blades year ends June 30, 2015. BBFSC would prefer to have the volunteers vs the money as it is easier and cheaper for all involved.
PLEASE CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING TO BE A SUMMER ICE MONITOR.
