GENERAL SKATE & GENERAL HOCKEY

There is no General Skate of General Hockey on Saturday as our Member Hockey Tournament is taking place. There is still General Skate and General Hockey scheduled on Sunday March 10th.

 When attending General Skate and General Hockey. Please make sure you are following the below guidelines:

General skate times are set aside for the enjoyment of all members. Come on out and enjoy a spin around the ice with friends and family. There are no sticks or pucks allowed on the ice during the general skate times and children under the age of 7 must be supervised by an adult. Helmets are strongly recommended for children under the age of 10.
If you see anyone on ice with sticks and pucks during this time please inform Jessica, the rink attendant or Front Desk.

General hockey times are set aside for the enjoyment of all members. Sticks and pucks are welcome but there is no pick up hockey or drill trainings allowed during this time. Ice space is shared between all members. Helmets are required for children 12 years of age and younger and
recommended for all. Children under the age of 7 must be supervised on ice by an adult.

If you see anyone on ice not adhering to these rules, please inform Jessica, the rink attendant or Front Desk.

We welcome all of our members to bring visitors with them to try out the club. A reminder that the guest fee to bring a guest is $20 ($10 for children). If your guest is interested in trying out the club and engaging in our 2 month VIP trial, be sure to refer them to me and we will get them signed up. The trial is designed to give prospective members a well rounded experience at the club. As you are aware as members, there are so many different experiences to be had at the club, the true trial experience will occur over multiple visits.

If you bring a guest to the club and they enjoy it so much they want to have the trial, please email Sharon Loewen to refer them, and we will refund the guest fee once they are signed up for the trial.

Remember, guests are welcome to join you at the club 2x per month and up to 10x per year. If you have a friend who wishes to use the club more than that, then refer them to the VIP program, they probably would enjoy being a member!
