Ice Rental Terms & Conditions

Payment is due at the time of booking; we do not place any holds on any ice time. Rental permits/contracts are issued as confirmation of a booking, and outline the Terms of Use. Permits must be signed and submitted to staff.

Dressing rooms will be assigned to renters when they arrive; no food or drink is permitted in the dressing rooms, on the benches, or on the ice. Concessions are available at each arena; operating hours cannot be guaranteed to be open during a rental.

Users cannot be on the ice with regular footwear or with strollers; only skates and appropriate support equipment are allowed on the ice. Renters can request nets to be put out by staff.

Minimum “one hour” rentals are required; however, this is booked on 50-minutes of actual skate time to allow for ice flooding between rentals.

View the Community Room & Halls webpage for details on booking an arena room with the ice.

Ice Rental Pricing

All fees listed below apply to all arenas equally and are subject to an additional insurance fee. A subsidy/discount of 25% is applied to rentals for Council Approved Youth Groups only.
