DESCRIPTION: Freestyle sessions provide practice ice for beginner to advanced figure skaters and their coaches.
RULES & CONDUCT: All skaters and coaches should review the "Rules & Conduct" section at the bottom of this page before taking the ice.
Sign In - You must sign in and pay before taking the ice. Skating without paying may to result in a temporary or permanent loss of skating privileges.
What To Wear - The rink is cool during summer months and cold during winter months. Skaters and coaches should wear athletic, training or performance apparel. Jeans and other street wear are not permited. Dress in layers as you will warm up while skating. Gloves are recommended during cold months.
Beginner Level Skaters - Beginner skaters must be accompanied by a coach.
Safety - Be aware of other skaters. Never cut off a skater in the middle of a jump or spin. Standing around creates obstacles for other skaters; keep moving at all times. If you fall, get up quickly unless you are injured. This lets others on the ice know you are OK and protects you and other skaters. Unless skating your program, spins should be done in the center of the ice and jumps done at the perimeter.
Conduct - Have a positive attitude. Respect other skaters, coaches, rink customers and staff. Reckless, rude or disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. Use your time wisely. Bring tissues, water, music or other items needed to the boards so you can spend more time skating.
Right Of Way - A skater in a lesson skating their program has first right of way. A skater in a lesson has second right of way. A skater not in a lesson but practicing a program has third right of way.
Music - Play program music in rotation with other skaters. During a lesson, a coach may interrupt the rotation. Skaters in a lesson may only play their program twice in a session if others are waiting.
Spectators - Spectators may not stand in or near rink doorways or in the player boxes. Parents should not coach from anywhere off the ice as this is a distraction to the skater, coach and other skaters on the ice.
