​Tips for a Fun & Safe Skating Session

  • Wear comfortable clothing - not too tight but not too baggy
  • Gloves will keep your hands warm and provide protection if you fall
  • Wear comfortable socks
  • Do not wear a scarf - it could be dangerous to you and others
  • Tie your skates up to your ankle to ensure maximum comfort
  • Before getting onto the ice, try walking around to get used to the feel and weight of your skates
  • Patrons are welcome to wear suitable safety gear, eg, helmets, elbows and knee pads
