Open Skate Rules for Figure Skaters

Public/Open Session w/ 12 cones        

Open Public Skate: Recreational skating for all ages of recreational abilities.  Activities include basic skating and/or laps outside of the coned off areas.

    • No double or higher jumps

Open Skate Rules for General Public

Ice skating is for fun and enjoyment for everyone. Skating can be enjoyed in many ways. Regardless of your skill level, there are elements of risk in ice skating. Use common sense, show courtesy to others, and anticipate dangerous situations before they arise.  The following rules are basic elements of safety and courtesy:

  • Helmets are strongly recommended for all participants.
  • No rough housing or playing tag, chase, or crack the whip.
  • No sticks, pucks, or balls.
  • No weaving around other skaters or the cones.
  • Please skate outside of the coned area.
  • No one is allowed on the ice without skates.
  • Ice skates are not allowed in bleacher area.
  • No carrying children at any time on the ice.
  • No food or drink allowed on the ice.
  • You must pay, present punch card, or check in prior to skating.
  • Please skate in counter clockwise motion unless otherwise instructed by SIA staff.
  • Report any dangerous situations or behavior to staff immediately.
  • Skaters participating in open skate are doing so at their own risk.
  • Respect the ice. Please do not litter or use foul language.
  • Younger and inexperienced skaters should skate near the boards.
  • No personal music is to be played on Public Session with the exception of FS skaters program music and lessons.

This is just a partial list. There are elements of risk that common sense and personal awareness can help reduce. You are ultimately responsible for your personal safety. Use caution, and skate in control. Respect other skaters. Staff cannot guarantee your safety and will not protect you from injury. It is part of your responsibility to avoid other skaters and hazards. Failure to use good judgment, to skate responsibly, or to follow the rules will result in the loss of skating privileges.

Outside Food Policy: No community/group/shared outside foods may be brought in. This includes family-portioned snacks/meals. Single-portioned foods only to serve you, the individual. We do have a snack bar that offers a variety of food and drink. Please be respectful to our arena. Thank you.
