Skating Policies

  • All children on the ice are required to wear a CSA-approved helmet. During Parent and Tot lessons, all adults participating in the lesson with their child are required to be confident skaters.
  • Adults are required to wear CSA-approved helmets on the ice.
  • The following items are permitted:
    • street shoes

  • To ensure the longevity of your skate blades, ensure you walk on the rubber surfaces and avoid the cement or metal surfaces with your skates as this dulls the blades and affects your skating experience.

HOW TO LACE YOUR SKATES

 

Why Learn to Skate at Vivo?

Vivo’s skating programs introduce participants to the sport in ways that make it irresistible. We believe when you build a love for the sport, you build a foundation for lifelong physical activity and skill mastery.

Our skaters will build mental fortitude and emotional intelligence as they are caringly introduced to new challenges. Staff will not only encourage the creation of new friendships and social skills but participants will naturally begin to develop their own as they work with their peers to master new skills. We’ll have you gliding confidently in no time!

  • All change rooms are cleaned, disinfected and sanitized regularly in accordance with Alberta Health requirements.
  • All staff and instructors will continue to wear masks during lessons.
