Do you just love the frosty atmosphere of an ice rink? If this strikes your fancy, managing an ice rink might be the right job for you. Keep in mind, however, that you won’t be able to kick back and wait for customers to flood into your rink—you’ve got to get out there and hustle up business. Expenses are very high and profits can be low, so the more you can do to boost your bottom line, the better. Peak business is limited mostly to evenings and weekends. A rink manager must be creative in selling as many hours of ice for as many activities as possible.

On some lines, cruise staff will be expected to sing or dance in shows, but this isn’t as common as it used to be. Employers also prefer to hire employees who are fluent in at least one of the languages other than English that many passengers speak, such as German, Italian, French, or Spanish. Personal Attributes You should be enthusiastic and extroverted, and you must not get seasick or claustrophobic. You also should be creative and able to keep entertainment moving along. Requirements Each cruise line has different requirements, but many expect the cruise director to have a background in some type of entertainment.

Most rinks offer a heavy schedule of ice hockey during the spring and summer—leagues, tournaments, clinics, and drop-in sessions. To publicize all these activities, managers often maintain a Web site and send out flyers or brochures to keep interest in the rink high. If a hockey league or figure skating club that uses the rink is run by an independent organization, the rink man- ager works with coaches, parents, board members and players to make sure everybody involved is having a good time. Pitfalls Rink managers work long hours and are busiest during evenings and weekends.
