What should I wear when visiting the Rink Battle Creek?
The Rink Battle Creek offers several activities within our doors and your dress may change depending on your cause for visiting.
If you are visiting to skate, We recommend that you dress warmly with at a minimum pants and a long sleeve shirt. Remember you are skating on over 20,000 gallons of ice.
If you are visiting us for a game, please note that the Rink is a close seating facility and the stands will be cold. If you prefer a warmer seat, please sit in the bleachers above Row 5.
I have never skated before. What should I expect?
When skating for the first time or the first time in a while, you an expect that upon registering you will be asked to sign a liability waiver and be asked your shoe size. The staff at the Rink Battle Creek will provide you a pair of rental skated (as needed) These skates will differ in size to your shoe size due to the conversion of sizes. You will want to untie the skate all the way to the ankle before you insert your foot. You will then want to lace up the skate as tight as possible. For the most comfortable fit be sure to wear long socks. The Rink Battle Creek has new rental skates and these skates are going to be much stiffer than once available in the past. The Rink will also have skate aids available for your use..
How should I dress for Open Skate? We suggest that you wear, at a minimum long socks and pants. The long socks will ensure that the skates do not rub against your ankle when skating. In addition to the long socks, we do suggest gloves, a comfortable pair of pants and sweatshirt and gloves. A lot of our younger kiddos like snow pants to allow them to slide on the ice :)
My kids would like to play Hockey. What should I do?
The Rink BC is home to the Greater Battle Creek Ice Hockey Association and several house and travel teams. The first step for your child to play would be to evaluate where they would play? The Association offers Learn To Skate, Lessons and Learn to Play as well as Beginning Hockey outside of formal team. If you are looking for a formal team, then you would need to register your child through the Association (bcbruinshockey.com), House teams start at U6 (for all those 6 and under) and run through Bantam (u14). Travel teams follow the same pattern and include JV (u18) open to those who are freshman through seniors in High School. You are welcome to email us with your questions as well and we can route it to the Association. Our email is email@example.com
