  •  “Coaching” your skater from the sidelines is strongly prohibited. Please ask your skater to leave the ice should you need to speak with them.

Check-In/Check-Out Policies

  • All skaters should check-in at the front desk or with the monitor, if one is present, prior to getting on the ice. Any skater not checked in will be asked to leave the ice whether they are in a lesson or not.
  • Skaters should check-out of a session at the front desk or monitor if they leave the ice early.
  • Skaters may not cross over sessions without checking in first. Please be mindful of session times when booking private lessons.

Safety Policies

  • Obey all normal freestyle traffic patterns (jumps on the ends, spins in the middle, etc.). This includes dance and moves in the field patterns. All skaters and professionals should refrain from standing in the middle of the ice.
  • Back spirals or lifts of any kind may not be done on a busy session. (20 or more skaters)
  • Enter and exit the ice through the door only and not the player benches.
  • Skaters are not permitted to skate with headphones on or ear buds in their ears.

Music Policies

  • Music is to be played in an orderly fashion. Students in a lesson take priority in the music queue.
  • Skaters may play their program music no more than two times during a session, this includes skaters in a lesson. In the event that there is no waiting line for music, a skater may play their music more than two times. However, you will not receive right of way after two run throughs per session.
  • Those skaters who are in a lesson with a professional may play their music out of rotation and be (bumped) to the head of the line to have their music played. A skater in a lesson cannot bump a skater who is first in line and has already been bumped by another skater in a lesson.
  • A professional may request a skater’s music be played out of rotation (bumped) no more than two times during that student’s lesson assuming the music has not previously been played on that session.
  • There will be one skater’s music request between two requests made by a professional. (two skaters in a lesson, one skater out of a lesson)
  • A skater practicing their program must be wearing the program belt. All other skaters and professionals must yield to the person wearing the program belt while their music is being played.
  • Do not leave the belt on if you are not actively skating to your music.
  • On sessions with 20 or more skaters, music may only be played once.

Synchronized Skating/Theater on Ice Policies

  • On sessions that have 10 or fewer skaters, no more than 2 synchronized skaters may connect, but only after notifying the other professionals on the ice that they are doing so. Synchronized skaters may not connect at any other time.
  • Synchronized/Theater on Ice skaters may skate 2 at a time while their program music is being played. Both skaters are required to wear a belt and must remain within close proximity/side by side without connecting at any time, unless they are on a session with 10 or fewer skaters and have notified the other professionals on the ice.
  • Group choreography (3 or more skaters) of any kind may not be practiced on freestyle sessions without prior consent of the management. Group choreography may only be practiced on designated sessions.
