McCall Figure Skating Club Skaters' Ice Etiquette     

All skaters must sign in and pay, if necessary, before going on the ice.

Skaters should keep their heads up and stay aware of their surroundings. Good attitudes will help all skaters achieve their goals on every session. Please: no rudeness, tempers, disrespect, or fooling around. Skaters should not sit or stand around the boards for long periods of time -- stretch and go skate!

We encourage skaters to work on skating skills while on the ice -- alone or with others. Please have any social conversations off the ice. Chatting on the ice for prolonged periods, playing games, chasing each other, as well as kicking, digging holes, or lying or sitting on the ice are all unnecessary and disruptive. Please go to a public session if you want to play with your friends. Screaming, scraping or stomping the ice with blades or toe picks, and kicking the boards are all unacceptable.

It is important for everyone’s safety that all skaters stay aware of other skaters. Remember to look both ways before leaving the railing or skating across the ice. Skaters should keep moving -- it is dangerous for both you and other skaters to stand still during a session. It is especially important not to stop, sit, or lie down in the middle of the ice.

If you need to talk, retie your skates, etc., please leave the ice. For everyone's safety, skaters may not wear headphones or earbuds while on the ice.

Please be patient with and kind to one another; the rink is a shared and equal space.

No breakable containers are allowed rink side. WATER ONLY is permitted on or below the railing. Food is not permitted near the rail or on the ice. The benches by the ice are to be used by the skaters and coaches only. Please pick up all belongings (including dirty tissues, water cups, bottles, etc.) at the end of the session.

Coaching by parents from the bleachers, benches, or railing is not allowed at any time. Please do not interrupt other skaters' lessons.

The skater doing a program or dance to music playing over the loudspeakers has the right of way. Please stay aware of which skater is practicing with the currently playing music and do your best to stay clear of his or her pattern.

Skaters taking a lesson have the right of way over general skaters in the session. Please be careful of the harness area.

Please take turns playing program or dance music. When teaching a program or dance in a lesson, coaches have priority to play music over the loudspeakers. Please do not stop and restart your music if others are waiting in line. Please handle the music equipment with extreme care.
