Return Together

We are excited to welcome you back to the John Lindell Ice Arena in Royal Oak!

The safety of our employees and guests is our No. 1 priority, so we ask that you check out the following guidelines and regulations before arriving at the rink. We will be adhering to all government policies during our reopening. Please note the following action items, and check out the rest of the information and videos we have for you below.

  • Please arrive no more than 15 minutes before your scheduled ice session fully dressed for your on-ice activity. Social-distancing staging areas will be available only for participants to put their skates and helmets on.
  • Prior to entering the facility, ALL patrons must check-in via the QR code posted at the front of the facility. Participants will also have their temperature checked at the entrance; anyone repeatedly showing a temperature of 100.4 or above will be asked to exit the facility.
  • As a courtesy to others and per the governor's Executive Order, we ask everyone to wear facial masks at all times. The only exception is: Figure skaters will not need to wear them on the ice if they maintain a 6-foot social distance from others, as per the governor's latest EO 2020-180.
  • We will be working with limited capacity numbers (25%) so only two guests can accompany a child at this time.
  • Your bags will be left in the open staging area, so please do not bring any valuables into the facility.
  • All water fountains are currently unavailable - please bring your own water bottle.
  • Showers will be unavailable to all participants, as well.
  • At the conclusion of your ice time, you will have approximately 5-10 minutes to remove your skates and exit the building, as we need time to properly clean between each group.
  • Guests are asked to stay home if they are feeling ill.
  • There will be no lost-and-found - all items left behind will be discarded.

These policies will continuously be reviewed and updated as state mandates allow.

Please view the materials below for more information and to watch a walkthrough video of how to enter the building and access the ice safely.
