Program Assistant Schedule
PA session assignments are scheduled through our online PA system. This allows us to plan and track PA attendance for our skaters. No personal details are associated with this system. The PA Administrator will send an email to all skaters on a monthly basis requesting that they submit their availability. You will be advised of the submission period to enter your availabilityand it will be the skater's responsibility to ensure it is entered during this period. Once that period passes, the calendar will be closed an no changes will be allowed.
The schedule will be entered approximately 2 weeks before the beginning of the month. The calendar will be emailed to all skaters, posted on the board at the arena, and available to be viewed in the PA system.
Each skater is responsible to complete the hours once scheduled. If you are unable to attend, you are required to find a replacement. It is the skater's responsibility to email the PA administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org to advise of switches.
Note: If you miss a scheduled session without a replacement, you will receive a warning letter and a $20 fee will apply. If you miss 2 scheduled sessions without a replacement, the Opt-out fee will apply.
Please remember when making switches that the following applies:
- Yellow PA can replace a Yellow, Blue or Green PA
- Blue PA can replace a Blue or Green PA
- Green PA can only replace a Green PA
