Registration for Spring/Summer Skating is open for Vivo Members!
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!
Drop-in Skating is back!

Do I have the right helmet?
Different types of helmets are designed to protect from different types of risks. At Vivo, all skaters must wear a CSA-approved helmet. To know if you have the right helmet for the ice, check for this symbol:
HOW TO LACE YOUR SKATES
- All children and adults on the ice are required to wear a CSA-approved hockey helmet.
- During Parent and Tot lessons, all adults participating in the lesson with their child are required to be confident skaters.
- The following items are not permitted on the ice:
- street shoes
- bike, ski or snowboard helmets
- hot beverages
All change rooms are cleaned, disinfected and sanitized regularly.
- As of September 27, 2022 masks will be optional for staff and guests.
All spectators are asked to remain in the designated viewing areas and away from the players’ bench during the lesson.
Parents are required to sign their children in and out for every lesson, unless the child is 9 or older and has been authorized to sign themselves out.
When wearing your skates, please walk on the rubber surfaces and avoid the cement and metal. This reduces wear and tear, both to our facility and your skates. It’ll help prevent dull blades, leading to a better skating experience for you!
