Skaters must wear their mask up until the point they get on the ice for LTS or Private lessons. Skaters don’t have to wear masks on the ice however if they want to, they can, it’s not compulsory.

It is advised that Adults i.e. spectators wear face coverings but will not be challenged. 

Coach and Staff must wear their face coverings at all times. 


As discussed, when a coach books a slot on the coach system it will automatically add it to this new patch system and be available to book for patch skaters.

The system also moves over any ‘unbooked’ coach slots to the ‘non coach’ slot 24 hours before that session starts if unsold.

Booking a Patch Ice Slot session in advance will be necessary. When you book a patch ice slot the system will automatically allow your pupils to book onto this patch slot. Please ensure to notify your students on what sessions to book.

‘Non-Coaching’ slots will automatically show on patch booking system for patch skaters/users to book. Please note that coaching sessions will take priority.
