  • Please refrain as much as possible from any unnecessary touching of boards, glass, benches, etc. All areas of use will be disinfected between activities.

  • Do to strict occupancy guidelines it is very important for non-skaters (ie: parents) to exit the building promptly, especially during group learn to skate classes. We want to make sure that all registered skaters have access to the building so they can attend their class. Coaches are happy to assist with skate tying and removal before and between classes.

  • The 10 minute time between Learn to Skate classes will now be utilizing for transitioning skaters on and off the ice and in and out of the building. We appreciate your expediency and assistance.

  • Group lesson skaters must be able to stand up independently on the ice after a fall, as well as stand and march forward independently. 

  • Please no snacks or drinks rinkside with the exception of water in a non-breakable bottle.
