Volunteers For Health Screening
Volunteers Needed For Lacombe TEst Day
Thank you for volunteering with Lacombe Skating Club. Our organization is successful because of each of our volunteers. To help make this a successful year, it is asked each CanSkate parent volunteer one (1) hour per session and PreSTAR/ STAR Skate parent volunteer four (4) hours throughout the season.
There are many ways to complete these hours including:
Health Screening Table October - December
High Test Day (Dec 15, 2020)
Health Screening Table January - March
Carnival: various positions prior to, during and post the event.
As the Health Screening Table Volunteer position is new for each of us, here is quick outline of what to expect:
The time slots are set in 1 hour allocations with the exception of two slots on Friday.
Please wear a facemask during your shift as physical distancing of 2m may not always be possible.
A Health Screening Questionnaire is prepared for each registered skater. There is a binder set up for each skating day and is kept in the Storage Lock-up. Each skater has their own page and includes members of their household that may be escorting the skater. There is open space to include others that are not on this list.
As the Volunteer, you will ask the skater and observer/ parent for their name(s) and if they are responding “NO” to all the screening questions. If the answers are “NO”, the volunteer is to initial that session date that the screening was completed. In the event a skater has forgotten their gloves, there are some available. All skaters are required to wear gloves.
While at the Screening Table, volunteers are to assist in “crowd control” in the lobby or screening area. As skaters and family are entering and exiting the area, this will be a busy time. Once the skaters are on the ice, we ask the spectators to remain in the stands and not in the lobby. A gentle reminder may be needed for those not in the designated areas.
When your volunteering session is to end, please wipe all used/ touched items with the sanitizer wipes.
Information on the other volunteering opportunities will follow closer to their respective dates.
Thank you again for making this a successful season.
