Skateline conducted its first Skate Assist Volunteer (SAV) recruitment exercise on the year at Bishan Ang Mo Kio Park on March 7.

5 interested candidates were given an insight on the roles and responsibilities of being a skate volunteer. Two current seniors, Mr David Lim and Mr Ong Chong Boon assisted me in the drive. Both have had a vast experience in volunteering and have been with group for many years, and are certified skate instructors as well.

The main highlight was a simple skill assessment which tests the candidates on their skating skills and abilities. This is aimed at identifying their strengths and weaknesses. Future training sessions will be introduced to correct these weaknesses and improve their skills.

Each candidate is given a list of skills to perform. The seniors demonstrated each skill carefully before the candidates took to the stage, and were assessed carefully. 

It was a great opportunity for the candidates to learn and know more about their own skills.

Overall, it was an enriching experience for them and for us too, to welcome new members.

Be sure to look forward to the next recruitment will be in the second quarter of 2015.
