TAMPA BAY - The Tampa Bay Lightning today announced their newly-formed brand ambassador team, the Bolts Blue Crew, presented by Orangetheory Fitness, which will combine the talents of both the Lightning Girls and the Bolt Brigade. The Bolts Blue Crew will consist of both enthusiastic men and women, with tryouts being held on September 8 at AMALIE Arena.
"This new team of brand ambassadors will carry on the legacy of the Lightning Girls and Bolt Bridge, both of which have been engaging Lightning fans for over a decade," Lightning chief executive officer Steve Griggs said. "In continuing with our mission, the Bolts Blue Crew will serve as an extension of the team's brand in the community, at live events and at AMALIE Arena for all home games. We are continually evaluating and looking for ways to elevate our fan engagement strategies and live event experiences and are excited about this new and energetic group of spokespeople."
Tryouts for the Bolts Blue Crew will be held from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on September 8 at AMALIE Arena. Candidates may include, but are not limited to, actors, performers, hosts, emcees, athletes, dancers, cheer squad members and in-field marketers. They will be expected to provide world-class customer service and value, engage fans, perform and execute game presentation features, act as ambassadors at grassroots and community events, manage promotional efforts and drive fan engagement, prepare game-day elements and more. Candidates must be 18 years of age or older and possess the ability to perform extemporaneously, conversationally and comfortably in front of a large group, communicate effectively in a live event environment, demonstrate an outgoing personality and interface with fans of all types. Previous cheer, performance and/or promotional experience, as well as knowledge of the game of hockey and ice skating, are preferred but not required.
Candidates are responsible for their own parking, although the Pam Iorio Parking Garage is located adjacent to the arena. They can then enter and check in at the AMALIE Arena Premium Entrance located off Ford Thunder Alley next to the ReliaQuest Ticket Office.
