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.
  • 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!

The arena management and staff will enforce this Code of Conduct for all visitors of the arena. Loss of rink privileges, fines and/or criminal prosecution will be imposed as necessary.
