  • Please use party room designated for athletes to eat lunch during training hours.


  • ACCOUNTABILITY | Our athletes take pride in their roles as ambassadors of the rink(s). Athletes feel part of a community and a sense of accountability to, thereby encouraging them to value the process, the rules, and our check-in process.

  • SPORTSMANSHIP | All skaters, regardless of whether they hold home club, associate, non-member or guest status are expected to exhibit good sportsmanship and be courteous toward their fellow skaters, coaches, parents/guardians of skaters, Ford Ice Center staff, U.S. Figure Skating officials and guests.

  • GOLDEN RULE | Treat other people like you want to be treated - with respect. Both on and off the ice!

  • CONSCIENTIOUS | While in lesson or practice, it is the athletes responsibility to always be conscientious, mindful, and respectful with awareness of other athletes around them. Athletes must skate with the flow of other athletes and familiarize themselves with the most commonly used areas for jumps and spins.

  • RIGHT OF WAY | The only time an athlete has the SOLE right of way is when they are skating their program to music. When you hear another athlete's music, extend that athlete the courtesy and move out of their path momentarily. This only takes a moment and you will enjoy the same courtesy while you are performing your program. Please wear the colored belt when running your program so others know you have the right of way. (Limit to one time per session per athlete)

  • PATIENCE AND RESPECT | Advanced athletes are expected to exhibit patience toward all and/or beginner athletes. Remember, you were an inexperienced skater once, and it takes time for our future generation to advance to the point where they are completely comfortable skating with all levels of athletes.

  • ZERO TOLERANCE | Unsafe and/or discourteous behavior of any kind will not be tolerated.

  • SKATE SAFE - No cell phones allowed in locker rooms per U.S. Figure Skating SkateSafe manual for members.

NOT FEELING WELL? | If you do not feel well, please stay home! Your fellow training team mates are counting on you to keep them healthy!
