The best way would be to go into the rink (dressed nicely, resume in hand, maybe not visible etc.) and just have a casual chat with the manager. Make sure it's clear that you want to be a part of his place and are willing to help out anywhere. If you show that initiative (which puts you ahead straight away of anyone else who just dropped off a resume) and show that attitude of willing to help and learn (flexibility), then you have a good shot!
At our rink it depends on what you're planning on doing when it comes to this stuff. If you're planning on doing just anything (such as front-end stuff or snack-bar) then our manager would rather you just drop an application off at the office. If you're planning on doing something a little more technical/involved like resurfacing or pro-shop THEN he might want to have a chat.
