A CSA-approved hockey helmet or winter sport helmets (ski or snowboard helmet) are required for ALL participants. Bicycle helmets are not permitted. Face masks are not mandatory, but younger skaters may benefit from the added protection. Please dress for the weather since the Natrel Rink is outdoors and by the lake. Make sure that your clothing allows you to move freely while keeping you warm and dry. Snowpants or waterproof pants are highly recommended. Jeans are not suitable for skating. Waterproof gloves/mitts are ideal.

Don’t have skates or a helmet? No problem! We have rentals right here onsite. Rentals are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
