Skating Tips & Rules

    • To ensure best skating experience appropriate winter clothing should be worn while skating.

    • Skates should be 1/2 to 1 size smaller than the skater’s street-shoe size. Skaters should wear one pair of THIN socks or tights for maximum support. A skate should be unlaced before being put on, and then tightly relaced. If a skater’s heel lifts up and down or there is inadequate ankle support, a smaller ice skate should be worn. If toes feel cramped in the skate boot, a larger size should be worn.

    • Rinks reach capacity on weekends and holidays. Please plan to arrive early.

    • Children 8 and under must be accompanied by someone 16 or older.

    • Warning: Be aware, skate with care.
      Ice skating involves certain inherent risks which may result in serious injury or death.
