Code of Conduct

It is the policy of the Park City Ice Arena to provide a safe and enjoyable space for all patrons.

This policy outlines what conduct is acceptable and unacceptable at the facility. This document supplements the waivers, rules, regulations, and signage of the Ice Arena, programs, and leagues.

The Ice Arena has developed a patron Code of Conduct to communicate general behavior guidelines and provide staff with tools and procedures, as they address patron behaviors. The procedures outlined in this Code of Conduct are flexible to allow for some interpretation, depending on the situation. The foundation of this process is the Escalation Pyramid noted in this document, which designates five violation levels, each with corresponding action steps.

This Code of Conduct applies to any persons inside the Ice Arena or on the adjacent property, including the parking lot and sidewalks. Ice Arena renters, programs, and leagues may have stricter rules and regulations than those contained in this Code of Conduct. Renters, programs, and leagues may not waive any of the rules and regulations contained in this Code of Conduct and are expected to enforce it, facility rules, and posted signs for participants, coaches, staff, spectators, and guests, before, during and after their contracted rental.

The Ice Arena may apply this Code of Conduct in addition to action taken by a user group or rental, or the Ice Arena may deem the user group or rental’s action sufficient and take no additional action.

Code of Conduct
To ensure patron satisfaction and safety, the Ice Arena requests patrons and staff follow a code of conduct for courteous behavior.

  1. Always respect the rights and privileges of all persons.
  2. Comply with requests from staff.
  3. Comply with any rules of the facility, activity, or event.
  4. Conduct that disrupts or obstructs any activity or event is not tolerated.
  5. Lewd, obscene, or indecent conduct or expression, including profanity, harassment, discrimination, intimidation, threats, or offensive language and/or behavior is not tolerated.

  7. Destruction or damage to the facility or property is not tolerated.
  8. Theft of any property is not tolerated.
  9. Possession, consumption, or impairment from illegal substances is not acceptable at the Ice Arena. Alcohol may only be consumed during approved events, which are properly licensed and permitted, and must only be consumed by those lawfully able to do so.
  10. Check in at the front desk prior to any Ice Arena program. Patrons must register and pay for a facility program before taking the ice.

  5. Patrons who appear to be under the influence will not be allowed in the facility or allowed to participate in programs. This will be determined by a patron’s appearance, behavior, speech, or body odors that provide reasonable suspicion that the patron is under the influence of or impaired by alcohol or drugs and is a safety risk to themselves, other patrons, or staff.
  6. Express permission must be provided by the General Manager, Program Supervisor, Front Desk Team Leader, or Figure Skating Director to film or photograph in the facility.
