- Treat other members as you would like to be treated – with courtesy and respect. Be aware of what is going around you on the ice. Do your best to share the ice and ensure the safety and well-being of all skaters.
- Skaters in private lessons have the right of way during all sessions. Skaters should also be aware when solo programs and dances are being played. Spins should be practiced in the centre of the ice.
- Skaters should keep moving on the ice. If talking or socializing, skaters should move off the ice or to the boards at the ends of the ice.

- Skaters must wear appropriate clothing on the ice. Close-fitting items in stretchable fabrics are recommended. Hair accessories (bobby pins, clips, etc.) must be securely fastened into the hair.
