Basic Ice Usage and Skating Etiquette Safety Rules

Basic rules governing all behavior:

  1. Please respect the rights of others.

  2. Please respect the arena’s property and the property of others  

  3. Masks are recommended but not required for training ice session

Specific rules governing free skating sessions:

  1. The maximum number of skaters will be allowed on the ice for each session, depending on session size and level.

  2. Sign in at the box office and pay for each session before stepping onto the ice.

  3. No breakable containers are allowed rink side. Drinks are allowed on or below the railing. Food is not permitted near the rail or on the ice.

  4. Please pick up all belongings (including dirty tissues, water cups, bottles, etc.) at the end of the session.

  5. Parents, skaters not in the session, and other spectators should not loiter at the rail or benches. This is unsafe and it interferes with a constructive training session.

  6. Coaching by parents from the bleachers, benches, or railing is NOT allowed at any time. Violators will be asked to leave the arena.

  7. The benches by the ice are to be used by the skaters and coaches only.

  8. If skaters must talk to someone off the ice, even if for a brief time, they need to get off the ice to do so or the skater will be asked to leave the ice.

  9. It is important for everyone’s safety that all skaters stay aware of other skaters on the ice. Try to anticipate their patterns as you decide your own pattern.

    1. If you are a less experienced skater, please be extra careful to stay aware of other skaters and to look ahead of where you are skating to see what others are doing or are about to do.
    2. If you are an experienced skater, please be patient with the less experienced skaters. Remember – you were new to freestyles at one time, too.
    3. Please be understanding if someone gets in your way.

  1. Remember to look both ways before leaving the railing or skating across the ice.

  2. Keep moving while on the ice. It is dangerous for you as well as the other skaters to stand still during a session. It is especially important not to stop in the middle of the ice or any of the jumping corners.

Right of Way:

  1. The skater doing a routine to music has the right of way.

  2. Orange disposable belts are provided to help identify the skater whose music is being played.

  3. Please stay aware of which skater is doing his or her routine and do your best to stay clear of his or her pattern.  

  4. Please wear the belt when you play your music to help other skaters know you are skating your routine.

  5. Skaters taking a lesson have the right of way over general skaters in the session.

  6. Skaters on the harness also have the right away. Please be careful of the harness area.


  1. Program music will be played on a rotational basis. This will be done on the honor system, with the responsibility left to the skaters and coaches.

  2. After a skater’s music has been played, their music or another program may be put at end of the line to re-enter the rotation. Dance music can take the place of program music.

  3. Not everyone will be able to play their music during full sessions due to the lengths of the programs.

  4. Coaches may put the music of the student they are teaching ahead of other skaters. Everyone should appreciate this policy when they are in a lesson enjoying this privilege and graciously accept this policy when they are the ones being asked to wait in line.

  5. Please do not stop and restart your music if others are waiting in line.

  6. Please handle the music equipment with extreme care.
