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