FREESTYLE RULES & CONDUCT

Sign In

& Pay

You must sign in and pay before taking the ice.  Skating without paying may result in a temporary or permanent loss of skating privileges.
Ice ResurfacingNever enter or remain on the ice during resurfacing.  The driver has many blind spots and cannot see the ice surface immediately in front of the ice resurfacer.
Prevent Collisions
  • Pay attention to other skaters.
  • Never cut off a skater in the middle of a jump or spin.
  • Keep moving at all times; standing around creates obstacles for other skaters.

Jumps

& Spins

  • Unless skating your program, spins should be done in the center of the ice and jumps done at the perimeter. 
  • The ice inside the hockey face off dots is considered the "center" of the ice.
