The adult signed up for Parent & Tot sessions is not available, can someone else come in their place?
No.  Both the child and adult skaters are registered with Skate Canada at the beginning of the session.  This membership is required for insurance coverage.  ONLY the adult who is registered and paid for their Skate Canada membership is allowed on the ice.  If there will be multiple days where the adult can not attend with the child, please speak to one of our board members about registering a second adult with Skate Canada.  There is a $60 fee.

Are Spectators Allowed to stay and watch?

Yes.  Please note that it is cold in the stands, so dress warmly!
What do we do when we arrive?
When you enter the arena, the monitor screens (located above your head near the vending machines)  will indicate which change room your group is assigned to.  On your way there, please stop by the table in the lobby to pick up your name tag(s).  Every person on the ice must wear a name tag to indicate they have been registered with Skate Canada.  Adult helpers are included in this.  Please drop name tags off again at the end of the session.  There will always be an ISC Board Member available at the table to address any questions or concerns you may have.  

For Advanced Power Skating Skills Skaters ~ What do we do when we arrive?
When you enter the arena, the monitor screens above will indicate which change room your group is assigned to.  Rooms are assigned by gender.  The room assignment is subject to change weekly.  

We will be away for a couple of weeks.  Can we do make up sessions or receive a refund?
