Shinny Hockey Guidelines

Your guide to having an enjoyable, fun, and safe shinny experience at the LRC!

Pay & Play:  Proof of admission is required.  Players must wear a shinny specific LRC wristband at all times if you are playing shinny so staff and other players know you’re legit!

Sign-In to Play: Shinny players can sign in at East Guest Services up to 1 hour prior to the scheduled shinny time. 

Max Players: To maximize your shinny play time, shinny is limited to 20 players and two (2) goalies per shinny. 

Shinny is for Everyone: We offer shinny opportunities for a variety of age groups at multiple times. Sorry, no exceptions on age and play, proof of age may be requested at time of check in. Plan to play with your friends in your age group.  Check-out our latest City Guide to find the right Shinny session for you!
         * Please Note: Youth Shinny is only offered in August

Safety First!

  • To minimize your risk of injuries, shinny players are required to wear FULL hockey equipment*
  • Body-checking, rough play, and slap shots are a no go!
  • Set the hockey nets in place with their pins, close all gates that are not in use, and stop game play immediately if requested by LRC staff.
  • Pick-up any debris (broken sticks or blades) from the ice.
  • Pack chips/holes in the ice immediately or contact a staff member if chips/holes appear in the ice. 

Keep it Clean: Help keep our facility clean by respecting arena equipment and furnishings. Food, including sunflower seeds, alcoholic beverages, glass bottles and tobacco are not permitted in the change rooms, benches, or on the ice.

Kindness is Cool: We love the positive energy you bring to play at the LRC. Keep that energy flowing by treating LRC staff, and your fellow patrons the way you would like them to treat you. 

General Reminders:  Shinny etiquette is to enhance your experience during your Shinny.  It does not replace the City of Leduc, LRC Facility Use Guidelines and Expectations which are in effect for all public patrons and staff.

Play Safe and Have Fun!
