b       Bracknell Ice Skating Club Email Newsflash - August 2017


BISC would like to remind its members and parents of patch etiquette at Bracknell Ice Rink.  It is important that all skaters are aware of this code of conduct particularly those new to patch in order to assist with the health and safety of everyone on the ice.  At busy patch times it is likely that skaters will unintentionally get in the way of each other and if this happens it is customary to apologise.






1          These are practice sessions.  All socialising should be carried out off ice prior to or after the session.


2          Treat other skaters as you would like to be treated.


3          The lesson with the music has first priority


4          Groups give way to individuals and all other lessons have the right of way and second priority.


5          Please watch out for skaters doing their programmes to music (not in a lesson).  They have the third right of way.  This does not mean you have to stand on the ice and watch😊


6          Programme music must be played from start to finish, once.  Please do not stop and restart music as there are others waiting to have their music played.  Once everyone who wants their music played has had a chance you may play your music again. Be courteous.


7          For safety reasons, please practice your spins responsibly and not in the flow of traffic.  This does not apply during a programme run-through.


8          It is the responsibility of higher level skaters to watch out for skaters of a lower level when both have similar priority.  Lower level skaters need to be aware of speed of other skaters.


9          Skaters should exercise caution when performing backward manoeuvres.


10       There will be no poor behaviour, such as kicking the ice, yelling at other skaters to get out of the way, or foul language.  Skaters who behave in such a manner will be asked to leave the ice and there will be no refunds.


11       Please no gum, food or drinks on the ice.  Water bottles only C


12       Long hair must be tied back and please wear suitable and appropriate clothing – no jeans D


Thank you
