Timberline is a non-profit organization and relies greatly on volunteerism. Volunteering to help at club events like our annual show, completing hours rink monitoring, and fundraising are all important to make our club successful. By becoming an active and involved club member we know your skating experience will be both worthwhile and enjoyable! Any way you can help is appreciated!
Thank you for your support.
Annual Ice Show - March
The success of the show is dependent upon the volunteer help we receive from the parents of the skaters - each family is expected to volunteer in some capacity. We appreciated all you do!
Rink Monitoring is sitting at the rink in the hockey box, or music playing area of the rink during skating sessions. The rink monitor has a binder with a list of the skaters and takes attendance, collects walk on ice payments, checks off punch cards and makes sure that all skaters on the ice have paid for the ice session.
The rink monitor is also there, most importantly, in case of an emergency. If a skater is injured or just needs a band aid there must be an adult apart from the coaches to watch the skaters - much like a life guard at a pool. IT IS A GREENHECK AND MARATHON PARK RULE, we may not take the ice with out a rink monitor.
Rink monitoring is not part of your volunteer time. it is a job we must all pitch in and share for the skaters safety.
When the rink monitor does not show up, it puts this burden on the coaches who are teaching and should not have to take time away from students to collect fees and play music.
