Edmonton Oilers Orange & Blue Crew Auditions


2019-20 Orange & Blue Ice CrewWhat does the Orange & Blue Ice Crew do?

The Orange & Blue Ice Crew is a co-ed interactive group that represents the Edmonton Oilers organization at games, events, and appearances throughout the community. The role is primarily responsible for making sure our fans have the best experience possible and create “I Remember” moments for them! At games, the team assists with in-bowl activities, contests, and promotions (t-shirt tosses, prize giveaways, etc.), and on-ice they are responsible for skating to remove snow build-up during television timeouts.

Do I need to know how to skate?

Not all members of the Orange and Blue Ice Crew will be required to be on the ice, as this team is also responsible for off-ice activations throughout Rogers Place and the surrounding community. Applicants need not be professionally trained (hockey, figure, etc.), but a strong skating ability allows us the flexibility to have you in skating and non-skating roles and will be considered a strong asset.Please note: Orange & Blue Ice Crew members are required to wear hockey skates when performing duties on ice. So, those accustomed to wearing figure skates are strongly encouraged to practice adjusting to hockey skates before the auditions.

I’m a guy…is this job just for girls?

Absolutely not! The team is co-ed (guys and girls). Our guys perform most of the same duties as our girls along with managing Hunter’s busy schedule during games.

Is being a member of the Orange & Blue Ice Crew a full-time job? What is the time commitment?

Being a member of the Orange and Blue Ice Crew is not a full-time job. Orange & Blue Ice Crew members should plan for 12-25 hours of work per week on average. We like our members to have a flexible schedule and be committed to being available for nearly ALL home games and 75% of the events and community appearances. Orange & Blue Ice Crew are expected to be at the arena fully game ready a minimum of 2.5 hours prior to puck drop (not all members work every game). Hours will vary based on the Edmonton Oilers event and hockey schedule. Most Orange & Blue Ice Crew members attend college and/or have additional full-time or part-time jobs.

Do Orange & Blue Ice Crew members get paid?

Yes. This is not only a fun team to be a part of but also a paying part-time job! Orange & Blue Ice Crew members are paid an hourly rate for all games, events and community appearances worked.

Does the Orange & Blue Ice Crew travel with the team?

No. Orange & Blue Ice Crew members only work home games and events in the greater Edmonton area. From time-to-time, additional travel-related opportunities do come up in other parts of Alberta.

Do Orange & Blue Ice Crew members get to meet/hang out with the team/players?

Absolutely not. As with most professional teams across the various leagues there are very strict rules and regulations prohibiting fraternization with the team, players, coaches, and officials. There is a zero tolerance policy in place.

The Three Best Color Options for College and Pro Cheer Audition Outfits

Editor’s note: Its audition season and The Line Up, a long time sponsor of UltimateCheerleaders.com, has published, “The Three Best Color Options for College and Pro Cheer Audition Outfits”.  They have graciously agreed to let us share their information with our readers.

The Three Best Color Options for College and Pro Cheer Audition Outfits

By Stephanie from The Line Up

You’ve found your perfect outfit for your pro cheer audition and are ready to order! Now the question is, “What colors do I get?!” With endless possibilities for color combinations for made-to-order styles, we get that it is no easy task to decide!

Every year, we get a lot of questions about the best color combinations for tryout wear, so we’ve compiled a list of the top three color options for your pro cheer audition apparel. Check out the list below!

1. Team Colors

Audition styles in the same team colors – from left to right: 259-53F top, 425-34 top, 420-154 Zsa Zsa top, and 202-10 Sporty top.

Team colors are the most common choice for tryout apparel – and some NFL and NBA cheer teams even require it!  For example, the Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders require their candidates to wear purple, white, gold, or black to team auditions. 

Despite these color restrictions, there are plenty of ways to get creative with incorporating your team’s limited color palette into your audition apparel, while still putting your own spin on it to reflect your personality and style. If you’re a sporty kind of lady, apply your team colors to a style with an athletic look. If you’re more feminine, apply your team colors to an outfit with ruffles or a skirt! 

The Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders require that their candidates wear Vikings colors for their audition process.

2. Bright Colors

Brightly colored audition styles – from left to right: 420-10 B V top, 420-121A top, and 420-207 top.

Make a statement! When in doubt, bright colors always stand out in a crowd and pop against tanned skin. This is a great option if your team allows for flexibility with colors choices, but bright colors could even be incorporated with your team’s branded colors. Go for a brighter or lighter hue of your team color to make your outfit stand out!

Brightly colored audition styles – from left to right: 419-19K Zsa Zsa top, Layla top, and 424 VB top.

3. All Black Everything!

All black audition styles – from left to right: 420-107D top, Chicago top, Aura top, and Gleason Mesh top.

Some teams require all black! This helps give some uniformity to the tryout outfits and candidates. But black tryout apparel doesn’t have to be boring!! Spice it up with sparkly, foil or hologram fabrics to add depth and texture. Use sequins, lace or textural mesh to bring across your personality! An all black color scheme can give your tryout apparel some edge and sass.

All black audition styles – from left to right: 425-5D Zsa Zsa top, 425-5D top, 259-89B top, 411-33 top, and 411-33 Lace top.
