Helmet Policy
The City strongly recommends wearing a CSA approved hockey helmet to prevent injuries during public skating sessions and for all programs at Richmond Arenas. Helmets are available for use during sessions at no extra charge.

Public Skate photoHelmets are approved for each sporting activity for the best protection during a specific activity, for example, hockey, cycling and boarding. Note that a sport specific helmet cannot prevent all head injuries in all sports. 

Helmets have a limited CSA certification time period, so ensure that you are protecting yourself by wearing an activity specific helmet with a current CSA certification. For all skating and ice-related sports, it is strongly recommended that a hockey helmet be worn.
