Return to Play - Updated Protocols & Procedures

A Message From Our Team

The Rinks & Great Park Ice customers and families,

We are excited to announce that our facilities are now open in a reduced capacity.  The Rinks and Great Park Ice will be offering day camps, gym, and fitness activities by prepaid registration only. Consistent with government-issued guidelines, there will be no public programming (e.g., public skating, birthday parties, league play, classes) at this time. Please see below for how to register for a specific program and “how to” return to the ice and/or playing surface. We are excited to get back to skating again and look forward to seeing everyone soon.

Overall Facility Practices & Protocols

Below are practices and protocols that all guests must comply with when visiting each facility. Additional protocols not listed below may be in place at each facility. Programs will be modified to meet occupancy, distancing, and other requirements in accordance with CDC, local, state and federal policies and guidelines.

  1. To attend any session, you must register online at www.therinks.com. Only registered participants and one (1) parent/guardian will be allowed in the facility. 
  2. All participants must have an updated, signed waiver on file. 
  3. In order to ensure the safety of our guests and employees, in consideration of being allowed to use The Rinks and Great Park Ice facilities, each time a participant arrives at the facility to participate in a session, he/she (his/her guardian) will be asked to certify certain information pertaining to COVID-19, which may include the following:
    1. The participant does not have, and has not had in the last 14 days, a fever over 100.4 degrees; 
    2. The participant is not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (including, but not limited to, a cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, muscle aches);
    3. The participant has not had close contact within the last 14 days with an individual infected with COVID-19, suspected of being infected with COVID-19 or exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms; and
    4. The participant shall not enter the facility if any of the above is true. 
      1. If a parent/guardian will not be present at the facility when a participant checks in for a session, please contact your specific rink in order to electronically sign the certification within 2 hours of the start of the participant's session. 
  4. Participants will be required to have their temperature taken before entering the facility to ensure it is not over 100.4 degrees. If the participant's temperature is above 100.4 degrees, the participant will not be allowed to enter the facility. 
  5. All guests and participants must adhere to facility policies at all times. 
  6. Participants will be allowed to enter the facility 15 minutes before their session starts and be asked to leave 15 minutes after their session ends.
