Purchase Ice Time

Members, were have implemented a new system for you to pay and keep track of your figure freestyle time.

This system replaces the manual card system.

You now purchase tickets for ice time online.  The tickets contain a QR code that is scanned before you enter the ice.  

You can purchase tickets for a single session or multiple sessions.  The tickets can be printed out or displayed on your cell phone.

The largest benefit of this new system is that you can log into your account and view when each ticket was used and how many times remain.

Parents, we need help scanning tickets at figure freestyle sessions.  Let  us know if you can help us out with your iPhone or  Android cell phone.

Contract Ice

We now offer a contract ice program. You can sign a contract agreeing to purchase "all you can skate" for each month in the skating season.  By agreeing to this, you will receive the discounted rate of $125 per month. Additional, graduated, rate is added for additional family member participant. Contact Elena or Derek for more information.
