How does Swan Ice work? When Swan Ice is available, it will be published on the website (under schedules) and email, then you may skate during those times.
What are the Rules or Guidelines for skating Swan Ice? Swan Ice is NOT always supervised ice (we are all just volunteers) but we strive to provide our skaters with as much ice time as possible, for them to practice and succeed in their skating goals.
If there is Swan Ice - you are responsible for supervising your skater. We try to provide supervision but as an all volunteer organization it is not reasonable to expect full supervision of all Swan Ice.
What if there is Swan Ice - and the rink is open but no one is there? Your skater may skate, as long as there is a parent or a responsible adult there to supervise. So, NEVER just drop your skater off at the rink - always make sure that there is an adult present who agrees to supervise your skater. Do not assume an adult will supervise your skater unless you have a discussion with that adult and ask them to supervise your skater - always give them an emergency contact number so that they can reach you in an emergency.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, as always:)
