Public Skating

Public Skate Session

Fresh Ice

Public Skating is a great way to get some exercise & have fun.  Although not required, helmets (of any type!) are strongly recommended. We do not have rental helmets. Public Skating is defined as open ice skating for all with no hockey.

We've just purchased 85 pair of Riedell rental skates for use at Churchill Rink! This is the first time we've had actual rentals and not just a bunch of hand-me-down skates.  These skates are nice and we own 50 hockey and 35 figure in varying sizes.  As rental fleets go, we still have a limited selection and sizes are first come first served.  Rentals are $5 per pair per session.


Our regular weekly Public Skating schedule is below and also published on our LIVE SCHEDULE page. Any ADDITIONAL SESSIONS we may add due to vacation weeks, no school days, or special events will be posted on our live schedule as they approach and will be noted as "EXTRA" with an "EX" after the session name.
