The following rules apply to all Club Ice times. The purpose is to provide a smooth running skating session that allows skaters the opportunity to progress towards their individual skating goals. Under special circumstances, some deviation may occur upon agreement of the professionals and ice monitors in charge of a particular session.
All skaters will be expected to follow the rules at all times. Should a skater choose not to obey these guidelines, he/she will be told to leave the ice by the ice monitor for the remainder of the session with no refund. A warning may be given, but is not mandatory in all cases. If a skater is removed from the ice repeatedly, he/she can be taken before the board for further disciplinary action.
Skaters must check in with the ice monitor at the start of each session. If a skater is not checked in within 10 minutes after the session begins, their slot may be resold to another skater.
Only members and guests are permitted to skate during club sessions. All members and guests must check in or sign in with the ice monitor. Guests who are not USFS members must sign a liability waiver. Failure to sign in can be grounds for removal, without refund from the ice.
Skaters must obey the monitor in charge. The ice monitors and/or professionals have the authority to remove a skater from the ice.
Only choreography, dance patterns without a partner and moves in the field may be done during a Moves in the Field (MIF) session. No jumps or spins will be allowed on MIF sessions.
Jumps, spins, choreography, programs, dance patterns without a partner may be done during a Freestyle session. Dance patterns with a partner are permitted only on specially designated sessions or at the discretion of the ice monitor with agreement from the professionals.
Group programs will not be allowed during freestyle ice, except during designated sessions. A group consists of 2 or more skaters.
Continuous use of the same area of ice should be avoided especially in lutz corners.
Skaters are to keep moving while on the ice. If you need to talk, retie your skates, etc., you must leave the ice.
Skaters should not sit or stand around the boards.
Skater should keep his/her head up and be aware of surroundings at all times. Skaters performing their program to music must wear the safety vest or their turn may be forfeited. The skater wearing the vest has the right of way.
If you are performing your program while wearing the safety vest, it is requested that you say “music” politely to skaters in your path.
During a lesson or when entering the ice, skaters and pros should check for other skaters and not interrupt the flow.
Skaters or parents should not interrupt another skater’s lesson.
Good attitude must be brought to every session. No rudeness, tempers, or disrespect will be tolerated. No foul or abusive language kicking the ice or dragging a toe pick will be tolerated. This kind of behavior is cause for removal from the ice. No fooling around.
All skaters must be appropriately dressed during ice sessions. No bare midriffs are allowed.
No eating, drinking (other than water) or chewing gum on the ice.
Please remove all personal property from the boards when the session has ended. Tissues and boxes should be kept off the ice at the ice entrance area. Used tissues should be disposed of properly after the session.
At the end of the session, skaters should leave the ice promptly.
