Help Hailey Ice offer Free family skate night(s). Free Family Skate Night is an opportunity for everyone in the community to come out and have free admission to enjoy a night at the rink with family and friends. Free skate nights are very important because it is an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the rink and it gives a great option to families for an affordable night out. It also exposes more people to the sport of ice skating which is a sport that someone can do for a lifetime. An average cost for a skate night for admission is 00. (200 youth 100 adults). For this project, student’s Wow donation would go towards covering the cost of a Family Skate Night.

5th grade and up have the option to volunteer at the event, handing out skates, cleaning up, and being “safety patrol” on ice. Students can take a field trip to the rink to skate, and then talk about how a free skate night runs, what volunteers are needed, and the best way to market the event. The kids can participate in the marketing with promotion around school, social media, and reaching out to such places as KDPI and Eye on Sun Valley to be interviewed.
