UPDATE ON RINK HELP GETTING ICE DOWN

LAHA Members,

Below is a rink update from Brandon Tuning, who is Mike Lipiatt's assistant who will be supervising all the effort to get the ice down.  Please reply directly to Brandon, Tuning, Brendan <brendan.tuning@lacnm.us>

I will be Buffing the boards next week Oct 15th-18th . 9am-4pm

Power Washing will take place the week of Oct 21st-24th. 9am-4pm

Monday Oct 28th we will be putting down our fist layers of ice and then painting the sheet White, and sealing it as much as possible to protect it from the following days sun load.

Tuesday Oct 29th we will fix any white paint loss, after that we will  start marking out and painting all the hockey lines. Once all the lines are in and sealed, we will start building ice.

 

As Mike said we will need help from 6pm-10pm both nights, on Tuesday the 29th we can also use some help starting at 3pm as well.

 

We will begin Ice building starting Tuesday the 29th as soon as we are done painting, Ice building will be an overnight process until the ice sheet is thick enough for us to start grooming it with the Zam, the time frame for this all depends on the weather.  Over nights typically are two shifts of two people. First shit starts at 6pm to 12am, second shift runs from 12am to 6am.

LA RINK NEEDS HELP WITH GETTING THE ICE PUT DOWN AND RINK TASKS

LAHA Members,

The new rink manager, Mike Lipiatt, sent me us an email on getting the rink ready to put down ice, paint the ice and put down the ice.  See his email below. Respond to him directly.

 

We are scheduled to begin making ice on October 28th and 29th, and paint. We need 10+ people to help with this from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. both of these nights.

 

We will be building ice from October 30 to through the first week of November and need a few people to assist Brendan in this process.

 

ALSO – We start buffing boards next week and will be power washing the week of October 21. We need to put together some work parties for this as well.

 

PLEASE, respond to this email and let us know when you can help in each of these session to get our rink ready for the season!!!

 

Thanks so much,

Mike Lippiatt, Manager Golf Course / Ice Rink

Volunteer Requirements

Volunteer Requirements

LAHA Adult Volunteer registration is open and ready for the 2019-2020 season- volunteers must register- it's free.

USAH requires volunteers to have a background screening as well as SafeSport Training (takes about 2 hrs.) prior to any volunteer activity.

These are mandatory and are good for two years. If you completed a SafeSport training two years ago, then you only need to complete the refresher course this year (not as long as initial training).

If you are someone who falls within the listed positions below, please complete these items ASAP.

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POST- there are links and instructions you must follow.

Per the USA Hockey Safe Sport Program Handbook those who need to be screened include:

1. Members of the LAHA Board of Directors

2. Local program administrators

3. Coaches

4. Team managers

5. Officials (over 18)

6. Locker room monitors

7. Travel chaperones

8. Anyone with regular, routine or frequent access to youth participants

9.  NEW THIS YEAR--the requirement that players born in 2002 will be required to complete Safesport

We may require that additional persons be screened.

BACKGROUND SCREENING:

Please check to see if your name appears on http://www.newmexicohockey.org/page/show/829216-good-to-go the "Good To Go" list first.

Screenings are good for 2 years, and you may have been cleared for this season already from a previous screening. Only proceed if your name doesn't appear on the list or if it is in RED.

Screenings cost a considerable amount of money, please only do them every two years.
 

If your name doesn't appear, please proceed to the link below, this part is very quick.

The website is: https://loeaha.volunteerportal.net/    password: hockeyiscool

Please remember, the background screenings can take 2 - 4 business days, and then have to be manually entered on the LOEAHA site. Therefore, should you not see your name on the list after 4 days, please email me directly before running another unnecessary screening.

SAFESPORT TRAINING:

This part takes a couple of hours, but is required. 

First, you must register as coach, referee, or volunteer on the USAH website, a membership number is required for the training. https://www.usahockeyregistration.com/login_input.action

Once registration has been completed, then please proceed to the SafeSport training page.

http://www.usahockey.com/safesporttraining

Please keep a copy of your training certificate for your records.
