City of Pickering Ice Policy- As a condition of the City’s ice contracts, absolutely no one is permitted to be on the ice unless wearing a helmet (all arenas). Please ensure trainers bring a spare helmet to have on the bench at all times in case they need to attend to an injured player. Before or after games, bench staff are prohibited from stepping on the ice; however, we encourage all players to skate by the opposing team’s bench to shake hands with bench staff.
