As you all know we are re-opening the rink on Monday June 1st. As I am sure you all understand there will be strict guidelines that we have to put in place to open in a responsible and safe manner.
Below is a summary of our policy and operating procedures for freestyle ice which must be adhered to by all patrons and coaches.
This system is in place for your SAFETY. We are all doing our best to navigate through uncertain times, and we all need to keep that as our first priority.
To help us all adhere to social distancing guidelines the tables have been removed from the lobby and there will be specific doors to enter and exit the building and each rink. I attach a building flow chart to illustrate this procedure.
This policy will be in place at least until June 14th 2020
Freestyle Ice Policy
All skaters will be required to sign a waiver.
Freestyle ice will be restricted to 10 skaters per session
Each session must be pre-booked and paid for. Ice can only be reserved by your coach and can be paid for at the front desk.
All skaters must enter the ice by the gate closest to the front lobby and must exit through the gate between locker rooms 4 and 5. (Please refer to the attached flow chart for clarification).
Access to music is not permitted by any skater.
Skaters should bring their own water bottles and tissues. Place your items on the boards at least six feet away from another skaters items. Do not put your items in the players benches, this area is reserved for the coaches only.
Skaters must wear masks when entering the building and circulating in public areas. It is not required to wear a mask while skating, however you can if you wish. If you have to approach your coach and need to be within a six foot distance a mask must be worn.
Skaters should arrive at the rink no more than ten minutes prior to their ice time and should leave the building once their training has finished. I know this is not an ideal scenario however we have to control access to all areas and the flow of the building. Warming up and cooling down will have to be done outside.
Do not bring mats, rollers and other equipment into the building.
Please arrive dressed to skate. There will be chairs in the lobby for putting on and taking off skates however if you can arrive suited and booted all the better.
The dining area in the lobby will be out of use and skaters will not be able to stay in this area between activities.
Parents are requested not to come into the building where possible.

There are a maximum of six coaches that are permitted to coach on any session.
Coaches are not permitted on the ice and must coach from behind the boards in the players benches area.
Coaches must observe social distancing guidelines and remain 6 feet apart at all times.
Please ensure that when your student comes to the boards for instruction that they remain 6 feet from you.
Coaches must wear masks whilst in the building and coaching.
Only coaches can use the music system. There is a bluetooth option which can be operated as follows:

Look for PMD-526C on your bluetooth option on your device and pair (Sometimes you may have to forget device and turn off and on Bluetooth on your device)
There will be a bottle of sanitizer by the sound system & in the players benches area. Please sanitize the area you have been in before you leave.
If you have a break between lessons you are required to leave the building
These policies have been put in place for the safety of everyone. It is very important that we all work together to implement them and keep our environment safe.
