Skate and Hockey | Know Before You Go

Below are some details to make the most of your ice camp or program. Here's what you need to know before you go. 

Before You Arrive

Waivers Are Required to Participate

It is critical that you complete your waivers in advance of arrival.

Participation in WinSport’s Ice Programs, Camps, and Lessons (the “Program”) is subject to completion of WinSport’s Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreements (the “Waivers”) by the participant or their parent/legal guardian prior to the first day of the Program. PLEASE READ THESE WAIVERS CAREFULLY! By signing, you will waive or give up certain legal rights including the right to sue for negligence, breach of contract, or breach of the Occupiers’ Liability Act or claim compensation following an accident. In the event the Waivers are not completed, participation in the Program shall not be permitted and a refund will be provided.

Waivers can be viewed and completed here. Please use the same e-mail address you used to book your lessons to sign in to complete your waiver.
