What to Wear Ice Skating
When you are ice skating you need to remember that you will be on ice and that the building will be cold. Suggestions for how to dress when going ice skating.
Parents attending with young skaters can hold possessions like shoes, wallets, and articles of clothing. If the parents are also skating, most rinks have public lockers to rent for the session. The key to the locker pins to a coat sleves or pant pocket. The fee is usually nominal and well worth the cost to avoid the lost of valuables.
Children under the age of 16 should never be in a skating rink without adult supervision. A rink is not designed to provide a baby sitting service. Rink management has no authority to provide medical treatment in the event of injuries unless a legal power of attorney has been signed by the parents, witnessed, and a copy in the possession of guardian or adult who is supervising their care.
Even if a child is considered to be old enough to be responsible enough to be unsupervised by a parent or guardian, they should have information about parental contacts, health insurance, personal physician, and list of medicines, allergies to food or drugs, and other medical concerns such as diabetes. This request is made in the event that they have been render unconscious.
Dress code for anyone entering a rink depends if there is a viewing area that is heated or if the only seating is in the rink with its normal ambient cold and damp temperature.
