Covid-19 Update

We do not have any public sessions.

New Rules

Hello Friends of Ice World!

Starting September 14 we will have several changes to operations. Rink A will be up and running by that point so we need to update our protocols to accommodate two rinks.

New Rules

  • Skaters/Coaches will arrive fully dressed. Only exception is that goalies can put skates and leg pads on at the benches in front of the rink doors.
  • Skates can be put on outside the building at the chairs.
  • Skaters/Coaches will not be allowed into the building any more than 10 minutes after the session has started because we will need to start staging for the next group. Arrive on time or early!
  • Stick n Pucks will be limited to 30 skaters.
  • Ice World freestyles will be limited to 25 skaters and 10 coaches.
  • Hockey Games, Practices and Group Lessons will be limited to 40 people including coaches.
  • Hockey coaches must enter with their team.
  • Skaters will not have time to remove their skates and put shoes on inside the rink. This must be done after you leave the building.
  • There will be an area next to the exit (inside the building) where goalies can remove skates/leg pads.
  • Skaters will be told ahead of time which rink they are skating on so parents will know what exit to pick them up from.

Please see the pictures for traffic patterns and staging into and out of the building.

  • Picture 1: The yellow area is where the figure skaters, hockey skaters and coaches will stage.
  • Picture 2: Rink A pick-up area is at the hockey exit. Parents should wait for their kids in that pick-up zone. Rink B pick-up area is in the back of the parking lot behind Rink B. Parents should wait for their kids in that pick-up zone.
  • Picture 3: Once in the building, Rink A skaters will stage in the shaded yellow areas while awaiting entry into the bleacher area that needs to be vacated and cleaned from previous occupants. Masks should be worn while waiting. Coaches are responsible for their teams once inside the building. All participants skating on Rink A will be required to stage any items on the bleachers (shaded in green). Once Olympia doors open at the end of the session, proceed through both rink doors (red X’s) and collect belongings in the bleachers and exit following the red line out through hockey player doors (blue x) to the parking lot. Players are not permitted to sit in bleachers to remove skates after the end of the session and should leave the building immediately.
  • Picture 4: Once in the rink, Rink B skaters will stage in the shaded yellow areas while awaiting entry onto the ice. Masks should be worn while waiting. Coaches are responsible for their teams once inside the building. All participants skating on Rink B will be required to stage any items on the players benches (shown in green) during their session. Once the Olympia doors open at the end of the session, proceed to the players bench to gather belongings and proceed out the door marked with the blue X. Exit the building through the hockey players entrance shown in picture 3 (the exit in picture 4 has been changed). Rubber is continued to the curb.
