Fall Private Ice Information:

-Registration will be first come first serve when registering on the website. Private ice will not be registered for on our website.

-Pod system is still in use, max of 25 skaters/coaches/volunteers per contract hour
-One “rink parent” will be required per session to help younger skaters with skates, watch over the skaters if they need anything since parents are still not permitted in the rink. This will be a volunteer sign up similar to ice monitor sign up in the past. That one volunteer counts towards our total number of 25 people.
-Parents/spectators are still not allowed in the arena. Please tie your skaters skates outside or in the car, walk them to the Civic Center door and they will come in alone. The rink parent can help them as needed.
-Ice cost will be based on registrations again and billed after winter private ice begins. We will pass on ice costs to you at our break even point but not less than $14/hr.

-Contracts can NOT be split between family members (for example you can not buy a full contract and have two skaters split it in half. Each skater needs their own contract purchase. Can not split a full contract into two different days either)
-If you have two skaters and purchase a full contract, they may trade off week to week if they need to with their schedules, however you must have the correct name on the sign in sheet before it gets printed for the upcoming week
-NO requirement for contract hours for skaters this year with the exception that skater’s trying out for the ice show (solos, duets, trios) are required to sign up for at LEAST 2 contracts.
-Full contracts, No half contracts are permitted. If your skater chooses to only skate 30 minutes of their full hour contract they must enter the rink area with the pod at the beginning of the contract even if they choose to only be on the ice for the last 30 minutes. No new skaters can be introduced partway through.
-More flexibility with make up time for known dates that you are going to miss, no limit to how many dates you can make up.  Registration will be locked each Sunday at noon for the upcoming week.  Please notify Kitty Rader ( for known dates you will miss and the date you want to do make up and she will make the requested changes on the sign-up.  Each Sunday, sign in logs will be printed for the upcoming week, changes can not be made once those are locked and printed on Sunday at noon.
-Regarding any unknown missed time due to your skater or family member having the Covid-19 virus specifically, we will work with you so that you can make up that missed time.
-No walk on time is available as registration is locked each Sunday before at noon for the upcoming week

You will then schedule a time for a lesson with one of our coaches on your own if you would like a private lesson. Those lessons are paid separately straight to the coach. You can skate with or without a coach on this ice. If your coach is not there and you are signed up for private ice you can still use your ice. Refunds will not be permitted if your coach is not there as you can still skate without them. If you are receiving lessons from a coach on open skate and you are a club member, you MUST be purchasing private ice contracts through the club.

The following does not apply for Fall 2020 skating:
