Public Skate

Weekly public ice skating sessions are available at the Ritchie Center. Sessions are held in Joy Burns Arena or Magness Arena, and are a great opportunity to participate in a fun family activity or to practice ice skating skills.

When participating in a Public Skate session, we recommend the following attire:

  • long pants
  • a long-sleeved shirt
  • a light or heavy jacket
  • gloves
  • a helmet

Skates are required. Rental skates are available at the Joy Burns Arena front desk.
