Public Skating Rules

Ice Skating is for fun and enjoyment for everyone. Skating can be enjoyed in many ways. Regardless of your level of skill, there are elements of risk in ice skating. Use common sense, show courtesy to others, and anticipate dangerous situations before they arise.

The following guidelines are some basic elements of common sense and courtesy:

  • No speeding, No weaving, No roughness, No throwing of objects.
  • Helmet use is strongly encouraged.
  • All skaters must purchase a public session wristband and wear it visibly. No one is permitted on the ice without skates.
  • While on the ice, skaters must keep moving. Always stay in control, and able to stop or avoid other skaters. Do not skate in groups.
  • People ahead of you have the right of way. Headphones and ear buds are not allowed.
  • Jumps will not be permitted during busy public sessions. No routines during public sessions.
  • Tossing, hitting, or throwing any objects such as snowballs, pucks, gloves, etc. is strictly prohibited.
  • Kicking, digging holes, scraping, or stomping the ice with your blades and kicking the railings are prohibited.
  • Persons who appear to be under the influence of alcohol or other substances will be asked to leave the facility.
  • Keep exits clear.
  • Before getting on the ice, look for oncoming skaters.
  • Do not sit on the Dasher Boards.
  • Do not carry children or secondary items such as cameras/phones, handbags, hockey sticks, etc. while skating. Only Idaho Ice World approved skate aids allowed.  Absolutely no strollers on the ice.
  • No eating, chewing gum, or drinking on the ice.
  • Stay off the ice when resurfacing is in progress. Skaters may not enter ice surface until the Zamboni doors are closed.
  • Obey the Skate Guards. Report hazards to the nearest Skate Guard.
  • Because this is a facility for everyone please respect the ice. Please do not litter or use foul language.

Use caution and skate in control. Respect other skaters. The rink’s Skate Guards cannot guarantee your safety and will not protect you from injury. It is your responsibility to avoid other skaters and hazards. Failure to use good judgment, skate responsibly, or follow the Public Skating Rules will result in the loss of skating privileges.
