Reminder that No CanSkate or A session skater to be left at rink without parent supervision:
Just a reminder that all CanSkate & A session skaters should have a parent in attendance at all times during their sessions. Skaters should not be dropped off at the rink without a parent. This is for the safety of the skater as the club is not a "DAY CARE". We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. For more information regarding the "security and safety of skaters" please re-read the Important Information for CanSkate1, CanSkate2 & A session skaters.
