Wear a Helmet

Did You Know? Brock, Sandman, and Valleyview Arenas have ramps to make the ice accessible to those who use wheelchairs during the public skate programs. Helmets are mandatory for the person in the wheelchair and any attendant. Any/all attendants must also wear skates

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