Ice Monitor Information

What do ice monitors do?

  • Ice monitors are present in the announcer's booth during club ice times.
  • Ice monitors check in skaters and keep track of the number of ice sessions used.
  • ​Ice monitors rotate through the skaters to play their program music.
  • Ice monitors watch the ice and skaters to promote safety and prevent accidents.

​Benefits of Monitoring:

  • You get to know the skaters and coaches in the club.
