Open Skating

Ice skating is for fun and enjoyment for everyone. Skating can be enjoyed in many ways. Regardless of your level of skill, there are elements of risk in ice skating. Use common sense, show courtesy to others, and anticipate dangerous situations before they arise.

The following rules are basic elements of safety and courtesy:

  • Helmets are strongly recommended for all participants.
  • No Rough Housing, Tag, Chasing or Crack the Whip.
  • No Sticks, Pucks or Balls.
  • No weaving around other skaters.
  • No one allowed on the ice without skates.
  • Ice skates are not allowed on bleachers or concrete flooring.
  • No carrying of children at any time.
  • No food or drink allowed on the ice.
  • You must pay, present punch card or check in prior to skating.
  • Please skate in counter clockwise motion.
  • Report any dangerous situations or behavior to staff immediately.
  • Skaters participating in open skate are doing so at their own risk.
  • Respect the ice. Please do not litter or use foul language.
  • Younger and Inexperienced skaters should skate near the boards.

This is just a partial list. There are elements of risk that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. You are ultimately responsible for your personal safety. Use caution, and skate in control. Respect other skaters. Staff cannot guarantee your safety and will not protect you from injury. It is part of your responsibility to avoid other skaters and hazards. Failure to use good judgment, to skate responsibly, or to follow the rules will result in the loss of skating privileges.
