Program Information

Equipment

Children should bring their own skates and all participants must wear a helmet during the skating lessons.

Timely arrival

Please arrive 10 – 15 minutes early to ensure that your child is ready to skate on time. There is a Skate Room on the south side of the Community Hall with a washroom and an area to change into skates.

Cancellation

Lessons may be cancelled if

  • Wind chill or ambient temperature is -20⁰C or below at 9:00am

You will receive an email by 9:00am if lessons are cancelled, otherwise dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared to skate!

Parent attendance

All children involved in the 3 – 5 year old lessons must be accompanied by an adult, at all times on the ice.

Parents are required to be available for their children during lesson times (i.e. not necessarily on the ice, but within reach e.g. skate room).

Snacks and Hot Chocolate

Due to COVID-19, Hot Chocolate will not be provided, please bring some for your child post skate.
