Drop-in skating rules

We ask that all participants obey the 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.

Ticket Ice time is for figure skating purposes only. Due to the different types of movement and space requirements, power skating and hockey related training is not permitted during this time.

Review the drop-in 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 their ability to participate must take appropriate safety precautions to ensure their own safety.
