While taking part in Town of Innisfil Public Skating programs, all users must obey our Rules of Conduct to ensure a safe and pleasant skating experience for everyone.

Public Skating users attend programs at their own risk. The Town does not accept responsibility for related risks or injuries.

Public Skating Rules of Conduct

  1. Users must respect fellow skaters and all rules outlined on this page. Please report all accidents or injuries to the on-site supervisor immediately.
  2. We highly recommend that all skaters wear a CSA-approved helmet during all skating sessions.
  3. Skaters must skate at a sensible and safe speed, in the same direction as other skaters.
  4. The middle of the ice surface is reserved for children and less confident skaters.
  5. Wheelchairs, strollers and skating aids (E-Z gliders) are permitted during Family and Public skating sessions but must be accompanied by a responsible person on skates.
    • Wheels must be cleaned prior to entering the ice surface to ensure the safety of all skaters.
    • Helmets are required for stroller and wheelchair occupants.
    • We ask that wheelchair and stroller users use the perimeter of the ice closest to the boards, as recommended by the Ontario Recreation Facilities Association.
    • Chairs are not permitted on the ice.
  6. Users of Town-owned facilities are personally responsible for ensuring that they are fit to participate in physical activities. Anyone with a condition affecting his or her ability to participate must take appropriate safety precautions to ensure his or her own safety. They are encouraged to be accompanied by an adult who is knowledgeable about the condition.
  7. Users must be wearing skates to be permitted on the ice surface.
  8. All users must adhere to the following rules of conduct:
    • No carrying children while on the ice surface (including baby carriers).
    • No headsets, cell phones, or handheld electronic devices are to be used while skating.
    • No food and/or drinks are permitted on the ice. They must be enjoyed off the ice.
    • Foul language or inappropriate behaviour will result in immediate removal from the facility.
    • No games, such as tag, rough-play, horseplay or speed-skating are allowed. They pose a danger to other users.
    • No figure skating is permitted during Public Skating.
    • Users must skate in the same direction as all other skaters.
    • Users must conduct themselves appropriately at all times.
  9. Users attending Public Skating must have a responsible adult aged 18 or older to accompany any children aged 12 or under.
  10. Facility operators on duty must:
    • Be responsible for the safe skating conditions and make final decisions relative to safety considerations.
    • Ensure the safety of all users. The time allocated for Public Skating may be reduced in order to accommodate ice maintenance.
    • Ensure the maximum allowable skaters on one ice surface of 160.
