The Crystal Ice Figure Skating Club relies on volunteers in every aspect of our organization. While we have set a minimum requirement for volunteer hours, we are so appreciative of those that exceed those requirements. Without the support and commitment of our volunteers, many club events would not be possible. Even if your skater isn’t involved in a particular event, yet, we want to maintain opportunities for when skaters are eligible.
We have several volunteer positions opening as we prepare for a large graduating senior class this upcoming season. Committing to one of the positions below would involve working with the current volunteer for this season to learn the role, and then taking over the position during the 2024-2025 season. If you have any questions about what the position entails, please reach out to the current coordinator. Filling any one of these positions will fulfill your 5 (or 9 for multiple skaters) volunteer hours. This would not include your test session, HS team, or Ice Show hours required (if your skater participates).
- High School Competition Coordinator (October-December) Current Coordinator- Jill Przekurat firstname.lastname@example.org (fulfills your required 2 hours for HS Team)
- High School Team Billing (September-March) Current Coordinator- Terrie Tauferner email@example.com (fulfills your required 2 hours for HS Team)
- Rink Monitor Coordinator & Scheduling (this job is a year round) Current Coordinator- Tieoni Riley firstname.lastname@example.org
- Riverfront Rendezvous Soda Stand Coordinators (April-July) We have 2 coordinators for this position, we need to fill 1. Current Coordinators are Jen Lindsey and Terrie Tauferner- email@example.com
- 50/50 Raffle Coordinator (Ice Show Weekend) We would like to increase this from two coordinators to four. So we are looking for four people total. Current Coordinators- Terrie and Ryan Tauferner firstname.lastname@example.org (fulfills your required Ice Show Hours)

We are still in need of a few more volunteers for Ice Show Weekend. Please consider signing up: https://signup.com/go/GeowPHO
Volunteers should stop by the ticket table on the West end of the building and pick up their volunteer name tag. Volunteers helping backstage (skate shop, Zamboni end, and freestyle locker rooms) DO NOT need a ticket for that show. All other volunteers will need a ticket.
Rehearsals resume this Sunday, March 26th. Please refer to your rehearsal schedule.
Technical and Dress Rehearsals are mandatory. For an explanation of how these nights will be run, please review the following posts:
We can’t wait to see the skaters hit the ice. They have been working incredibly hard!
Show time is getting near! Before the show, please make sure to review the general show reminders, volunteer reminders and freestyle skate reminders. Lots of important information to help make the show a success!

We will be hosting 12 teams for our High School Competition and we need all hands on deck! We are especially in need of two volunteers from 1:45-4:00 to announce the teams and play music. A script will be provided.
Please use this link to sign up. The time slot will be updated, but you would be needed from 1:45-4:00. We have volunteers for 10:45-1:45.
The high school competition will likely start closer to 10:45 rather than 11:00. We are working to update the volunteer times. Please check next week as your time may be slightly altered.
Remember that all skaters participating in either the test session or highschool competition need to volunteer two hours of time. For highschool families, this is separate from your club volunteer time. Any hours completed over two, will count towards your required club hours (5 for one skater, 8 for multiple skaters). The Board of Directors is especially appreciative of those families that go beyond the required hours. To continue providing these experiences for our skaters, we really need families to help us out.
Thank you for your consideration,
