Open Skate Rules and Liability

Skate at Your Own Risk

Participants in ice skating activities which take place at SUNY Oswego's Marano Campus Center Arena acknowledge that skating is a potentially hazardous activity that presents an inherent risk of serious personal injury. 

Skaters participate at their own risk, and agree to accept responsibility for their own health & safety while at the facility. 

Participants who become injured or need assistance during an ice skating activity should seek help from an on-ice Skate Guard, Skate Shop Attendant or an activity coordinator.

Open Skate Rules

To help promote a positive and safe environment during Open Skate sessions and other group ice skating activities, Skate Shop personnel and activity coordinators diligently enforce rules of behavior for all participants.   Those who appear unwilling or unable to comply with these rules will be required to leave the ice for the remainder of the skating session.  Participants who have concerns about the behavior of other skaters should contact a Skate Shop staff member or activity coordinator without delay.
