  • All children under 12 and all beginner-level skaters must be accompanied by an adult member. Adults must wear skates and be on the ice with their children at all times.
  • This event is free for current U of T students and their family members. A valid TCard is required to access the arena.
  • Please note, strollers cannot be brought into the arena but may be left outside. As the  venue is concrete with many stairs,  please supervise younger children carefully and remain within arm’s reach at all times for safety.
