PSCHS General Club Rules

1. Ice skating can be dangerous. Ice surfaces are slippery and hard, and injury can occur for a variety of reasons. Therefore, skaters must exercise care at all times, skate within their limits and stay in control of their skating activity. Our coaching staff is available to provide instruction, per the fee schedule, if requested

2. Members of the Philadelphia Skating Club and Humane Society agree to assume the risk of injury that may be associated with figure skating and to release and hold harmless the Philadelphia Skating Club and Humane Society, its officers, governors and employees from any and all losses which they, their family and guests may incur as a result of participating in the Club’s programs and activities.

3. No skates may be worn upstairs. Use of the upper Club lounge is limited to Seniors and for specific planned activities for Juniors.

4. All those who eat in or use the downstairs lounge are responsible for cleaning up all debris and returning tableware to the counter so that the next people who use the area may have clean tables and surroundings.
