Parents should review this periodically with their skaters. Coaches will also review Skater's Etiquette during the first week of the season and as needed throughout the year. Our skaters' safety is a top priority for the club.
1. Priority is given to skaters who are:
a) in a private lesson
b) skating to their solo or dance music being played.
Give these skaters the right-of-way at all times.
2. Do not spend most of your time in the corners. Skaters who are practicing the Lutz may not see you as they enter their jump.
3. If you fall down, get up. If someone falls and does not get up on their own, do not move them. Get a coach to assess the injured skater.
4. When you are practicing elements like camel spins and back spirals be especially aware of the danger your exposed blade poses to other skaters. Take a good look at your expected "space" before you start the element, and stop if it looks like you could cause a problem.
5. Don’t stand around on the ice to “chitchat”. You interfere with other skaters, and you are wasting your practice time and money.
6. No food or drinks on the ice surface (only water is allowed)
7. No cell phones/ipods/mp3’s allowed on the ice.
