Online applications are being accepted now for the Pittsburgh Penguins’ skating “Ice Crew” for the 2011-12 season.
The “Ice Crew” is a team of energetic girls and guys who skate, help clean the ice, interact with fans at CONSOL Energy Center and take part in other Penguins’ promotional activities. The group debuted last year – the Penguins’ first at the new arena.
“We’ll again be looking for individuals with energy, drive, athleticism and passion for the Penguins,” said Laura Spencer, the team’s Ice Crew coordinator.
Auditions will be held in late July and early August at Iceoplex at Southpointe and will include both interviews and skating sessions.
