SAFESPORT at KLA

 Sportsmanship is key when on our freestyle sessions. Unsafe or discourteous behavior of any kind will not be tolerated. Klick Lewis Arena follows Safesport guidelines (usfigureskating.org/safesport).

Ice Etiquette and Safety:

  •  While in lesson or practice, it is the skater's responsibility to always be conscientious and aware of other skaters around them.
  • Skaters must skate with the flow of other skaters and familiarize themselves with the most commonly used areas for jumps and spins.
  • The only time a skater has the SOLE right of way is when they are skating their program to music. When you hear another skater's music, please extend that person the courtesy and move out of their path momentarily. This only takes a moment and you will enjoy the same courtesy while you are performing your program.
  • Advanced skaters are expected to exhibit patience toward beginner skaters. It takes time for our future generation to advance to the point where they are completely comfortable skating with all levels of skaters.

 These rules are set up for the safety of our skaters and to promote the best use of our ice time. All  Skaters  are required to know and observe them.

 Basic Rules Governing All Behavior

  • Please respect the rights of others
  • Please respect the Klick Lewis Arena property and the property of others

 Specific Rules Governing Free Skating Sessions

 The maximum number of skater (depending on size and level) will be allowed on each session. This will be determined by the Executive Director.

  • Sign in at the front desk before stepping on to the ice
  • No breakable containers are allowed rink side. Drinks are allowed on or below the railing. Food is not permitted near the rail or on the ice
  • Please pick up all belongings (including dirty tissues, water cups, bottles, etc.) at the end of the session
  • Parents, skaters not in the session or other spectators should not loiter at the rail or benches. This is unsafe and it interferes with a constructive training session
  • Coaching by parents from the bleachers, benches or railing is not allowed at anytime. Parents will be asked to leave the arena
  • The benches by the ice are to be used by the skaters and coaches only
  • If you are a less experienced skater, please be extra careful to stay aware of other skaters and to look ahead of where you are skating to see what others are doing or are about to do
  • If you are an experienced skater, please be patient with the less experienced skaters. Remember – you were new to skating at one time, too
  • Please be understanding if someone gets in your way. Remember to look both ways before leaving the rink wall or skating across the ice. Keep moving while on the ice, as it is dangerous for both you and the other skaters to stand still during a session. It is especially important not to stop in the middle of the ice or any of the jumping corners.

 Right of Way

  •  The skater doing a routine to music has the right of way. Please stay aware of which skater is doing his or her routine and do your best to stay clear of his or her pattern.
  • Skaters taking a lesson have the right of way over general skaters in the session.
  • Skaters on the harness also have the right away. Please be careful of the harness area when in use. Harness may only be used with a coach in a lesson.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS: bike, all sport or hockey (protective) helmets for ages 5 & under. Avoid snow pants and wear light layers and bring gloves.

The rink temperature is about 45 degrees F.

Skate rental is included with Learn to Skate programs.
