Skater’s Responsibility Code
- Always stay in control and be able to stop or avoid other skaters.
- While on the ice, keep moving with the flow of skaters in a counter-clockwise direction. Never stop where you will obstruct other skaters or skate in groups.
- Skaters ahead of you always have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid hitting them or disrupting them.
NO THROWING OBJECTS OR SNOWBALLS
- Keep ice exits clear. When entering the ice, watch for oncoming skaters. Never sit on the dasher boards or loiter at the exit/entrance gates.
- Never carry children or other items when skating. Never bring objects onto the ice (cones, milk crates, etc.). No eating, drinking or smoking on the ice.
- Ice resurfacing machines are very dangerous, always stay off the ice when the resurfacer is in operation.
- Do not step on the ice without skates. Never wear skates in stands.
- Always obey ice monitors; report any hazards or unsafe behavior to ice monitors at once.
- Respect the ice and others around you, never litter or use foul language.
This is only a partial list of your responsibilities as a participant in skating. There are elements of risk that common sense, courtesy, and personal awareness can help reduce. Remember that you are ultimately responsible for your personal safety!
