Skate Canada Skaters’ Agreement
With The Campbell River Skating Club
This Agreement is specific to those skaters in the STAR program (includes Seniors).
On Ice Rules:
- Skaters are to be at the rink on time for all practice and lesson sessions. Speak with your coach if there is a problem being on time.
- No food, gum or drinks other than water bottles on the ice.
- No “fooling around” on the ice (pushing, racing, kicking the ice etc.) No rowdiness or swearing will be tolerated. If a skater continually misbehaves, the coaches have the right to ask the skater to leave the ice for the remainder of the session.
- If a skater should fall on the ice, it is important that the skater gets up immediately if not injured. Failing to do so is dangerous to the skater who has fallen and other skaters.
- For safety reasons, long hair is to be tied neatly back from the skater’s face.
- Skaters having their solo played have the right of way.
- In Skills & Dance, skaters having their dance/skill music played have right of way.
