Freestyle Code of Conduct

Freestyle sessions provide a controlled skating environment during which skaters have private lessons, practice their programs and work on advanced skating skills. Skating on Freestyle sessions is a privilege, not a right. Please consult with your private coach or a rink staff member before attending your first Freestyle session.

 

By skating on a freestyle, you are agreeing to the following:

 

 Who is in charge? 

  • Each coach is responsible for monitoring skaters’ conduct regardless of the skater/coach relationship. Skaters will receive suggestions for improvement with sincere respect and courtesy.

  • Lloyd Center Ice Rink employees are required to ensure that skaters comply with rink policies. Skaters will receive suggestions for improvement with sincere respect and courtesy  

  • Each parent is responsible for supporting his or her child, monitoring the child’s conduct and, having entrusted the child’s training to the coach, showing respect for the coach by refraining from coaching from the side lines. 

  • Rules are to be enforced by coaches and rink staff, not other skaters. Coaches and staff can and will administer warnings for repeat misconduct by a skater that may result in a temporary exclusion to freestyle sessions.

 

Freestyle Etiquette  

Prior to stepping on the ice

  1. Sign in, pay for each session, and wear the designated wristband(s) for each session 

  2. Put personal items in a locker or other secure location 

  3. Do not step on the ice until the session begins, or until an employee gives the go ahead 

Display “Good Sportsmanship” at all times 

  1. Say, “Excuse me”, if someone is in your path, and apologize if you get in another skater’s way

  2. Show courtesy and respect to coaches, rink staff, parents and other skaters

    • ​​​​No yelling or screaming at coaches, rink staff, parents or skaters  

    • Physical displays of anger, such as hitting, throwing items, stamping your feet and kicking the ice or the boards will not be tolerated

  6. Skaters not “In Lesson” check with coaches at the music station for opportunities and the order to play their own

  7. CDs/Music may be replayed after all other music/CDs have been played. Coaches are exempt from this rule, and may jump ahead.

  8. Music/CDs may only be restarted due to a false start; not for a fall or other “skater error” 

  9. Playing a portion/section of your music twice is the same as playing the full program 

  10. Dance music is counted as one program
