Did You Know?

Brock and Valleyview Arenas allow patrons in wheelchairs on the ice during public skate sessions. Helmets are mandatory for the person in the wheelchair. The wheelchair attendants must wear a helmet and skates

Wear a Helmet

Brain injury is the number one killer and disabler of people under the age of 45. Wearing a C.S.A approved helmet is the easiest way to prevent brain injury while on the ice.
