JULY - AUGUST

Did You Know?

Brock Arena has ramps to make the ice accessible to those who use wheelchairs during the public skate programs. Helmets are mandatory for both the person in the wheelchair and any attendant. Any/all attendants must also wear skates on the ice.

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.
