For the benefit of our skaters, coaches and parents, please observe the following guidelines so figure skating sessions can be a positive experience for everyone. Figure skating sessions are designed for figure skaters to learn advanced skills, train and practice their routines. Skaters and coaches must sign in and pay at the front desk before stepping on the ice.
- Open sessions are used for dance, freestyle, Moves in the Field and Learn to Skate USA Basic 4 or above. There are a variety of disciplines on this session and requires your special awareness.

Right of Way:
- Programs have the first priority to the right of way. The program skater should be easily identifiable by the use of a fluorescent colored sash tied around the waist. Programs should be played in the order they are lined up on the board.
