New helmet policy - effective February 1:

  • Children aged 10 and under must wear a CSA-certified hockey helmet at all City indoor arenas in order to be allowed on the ice.

CSA-certified hockey helmets:

  • Provide optimal protection from head injury during on-ice activities.
  • Are designed to provide multi-impact protection from multiple directions.
  • Are strongly recommended for everyone participating in on-ice activities at all types of rinks.

The city is offering coupons for 15 percent off hockey helmets purchased at Play It Again Sports, and will offer free family skating to help further offset the cost.
