  • Body-checking, rough play, slap shots, pick up games, scrimmages, and formal coaching are a no go!
  • Set the hockey nets in place with their pins, close all gates that are not in use
  • Stop practice 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: Stick and puck etiquette is to enhance your experience during your practice time.  It does not replace the City of Leduc, LRC Facility Use Guidelines and Expectations which are in effect for all public patrons and staff.
