Younger and Inexperienced skaters should skate near the sides.
Helmets are strongly recommended for all participants.
Only those wearing skates are permitted on the ice.

Unsafe skating is not permitted. (Including: Rough Housing, Tag, Weaving, Chasing or Crack the Whip)
Ice skates must be removed before leaving the ice or mats.
