Family skating is open to Members for recreational skating only. No hockey sticks or pucks are permitted. This is a great opportunity for beginning skaters to practice. Helmets are required for all skaters 16 years of age and under. Members will be able to bring a limited number of guests with them on Sundays, for a charge of $5 per guest.
In addition to the scheduled Family Skating sessions, the Weston Recreation Department also plans to offer various skating and hockey activities during the public school vacation weeks in December and February. Such programs will be available to Members as well as non-members for a separate fee as they are separate from the Club's Membership benefits. Members will be notified of these programs as they are organized later this fall.
Depending on the number of skaters at Family Skating sessions, the Club could impose restrictions or a reservation system during the season either to ensure adequate open ice, to reduce neighborhood traffic volume, or to stay within Rivers' parking capacity.
Skate Monitors, Rink Guards and Learn To Skate Volunteers needed: If you are a Weston Resident and are a middle school or high school student who is mature, reliable and an above average skater, we need your assistance for Family Skate. If you would like to volunteer during Family Skating sessions and during vacation weeks, please contact us. Weston High students earn Community Service hours for this commitment. Please provide your name, grade, phone number and any time and date restrictions. Learn To Skate program volunteers are needed off the ice to help with program operation.
