West Toronto Skating Club 179 Brock Avenue | Toronto, ON | M6K2L7 |
Jeans should not be worn on the ice.
• Off-Ice - Please bring your own water bottle and make sure you are in proper athletic gear. Bring a sweater or thin jacket on
cooler days. Skates, skate bags, coats, sweaters and other items must not be stored in the club office.

• Whenever on the ice surface, skaters must remain aware of and show due regard for the safety of all other persons on the ice.
Any skater misbehaving (racing, tag, rough house) or deliberately interfering with the flow of the session will be removed for the
duration of the session. Food and/or beverages must not be taken onto the ice surface, with the exception of water.
• Parents/Guardians/Spectators - Parents of skaters 12 and under must be easily accessible during Winter skating
sessions. Please ensure your phone contact info has been updated in your online account.
• The club’s goal is to create a safe, caring environment. Any act or conduct to the detriment of the good of all or contrary to the
established standards outlined above and with respect to behaviour and sportsmanship within the Club is not permitted. This
includes, but is not limited to, bullying, verbal abuse, intimidation, swearing, insults, sarcasm or harassment.
Any complaint about the conduct or behaviour of members or concerning the management of the Club shall be made in writing to

• All skaters and coaches MUST leave the ice surface immediately upon the announcement for the commencement of the floods.
Courtesy: Courtesy is first and foremost. It is essential to respect the rights of other skaters and be aware of who is around you
at all times. Right of Way: First priority is given to skaters who are skating to their solo or dance music. Second priority is given to
skaters in a group lesson. Give these skaters the right of way at all times. Skaters with the right of way must also remember to
keep an alert eye open to avoid collisions and may respectfully remind others of right of way (e.g. “excuse me”).
• Spins should be performed at the centre of the ice surface, and jumps should be at the ends and in the corners. 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.
• If you fall down, get up as quickly as possible. If someone falls and does not get up on their own, do not move them. Get a
coach to assess the injured skater. In the meantime, have someone stand “guard” over them to make sure other skaters avoid
collisions with them. 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 do not proceed with the element if it looks like you
could cause a problem for yourself or other skaters on the ice..
• Don’t stand around on the ice to “chitchat”. You interfere with and/or present a hazard to other skaters, and you are wasting
your practice time. Skaters are expected to be skating at all times while on the ice. Wearing earbuds/headphones is not
permitted while on the ice.

• The Program Director / Head Coach / Club manager reserves the right to rearrange group lessons according to level, age and
numbers of skaters. All skaters and coaches give the right of way to group lessons.

they are included in whole or part, for advertising, trade, web and multimedia or any other lawful purpose. Members waive the
right to approve the finished products, for advertising, new media or printed, that might be used in connection with their images.
