GUEST COACHING POLICY:
As a private facility, the Oakland Ice Center – Operated by Sharks Ice and its Skating Department reserves the right to approve or deny any guest coach who seeks the opportunity to coach/instruct at a Sharks Ice facility. Allowances for guest coaches apply primarily to local competition weeks and/or test schedules.
However, some exceptions and special circumstances may be granted by the Oakland Ice Center Skating Manager.*
Any coach not affiliated with the Oakland Ice Center seeking the opportunity to guest coach/instruct within a Sharks Ice facility, must contact the Skating Manager, David Hicks, at least seven (7) days in advance (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Upon approval and prior to their first ice session, a guest coach must stop at the
Skating Manager’s Office and submits:
1) a current copy of their liability insurance
2) $50 per day coaching fee
The guest coach will then receive a “guest coach” sticker that is to be worn on their jacket as proof they are compliant with all guest coach policies.
Once in the facility, the guest coach agrees to follow the Oakland Ice Center freestyle rules and regulations (posted on the Oakland Ice Center website at www.oaklandice.com). Failure to comply will result in the loss of the guest coach privileges.
*The Guest Coach Protocol does not apply to coaches who are invited by the Skating Manager to work special skating camps, academies, and related special appearances.
