FEFC Roller Skating Guidelines

Skate Day is one of  the most popular activities for FEFC members (& non-members are always welcome to join us!). As our group is getting larger, it is extremely important that parents know & review these rules with their children prior to each roller skating event. This will ensure a safe & orderly time.

  1. Please remind older children to be considerate skaters. There are many young, inexperienced skaters sharing  the rink.

  2. Teach younger skaters to:

    • stay near the outside edge of the rink;

    • not to cut across the rink; &

    • to always go in the proper direction (i.e., with – not against – the crowd). Please monitor younger children frequently. 

  3. No racing is permitted.

  4. For the sake of safety, the following is not allowed on the rink:

    • gum, candy, food

    • hats – worn or carried

    • anything that could be dropped & cause an accident.

  5. No one is to sit on the walls around the rink.

  6. No forming of “chains” on the rink.

  7. Children may not be carried by anyone wearing skates (on or off the rink).

  8. For safety’s sake, if you see a spilled drink, please help us by immediately cleaning up the spill. We do not have a designated clean-up crew – we are all responsible.

  9. Respect of property is of utmost importance & expected. Lockers, public phones, vending machines, & all other equipment / facilities are to be used only for their intended purposes.

  10. Please inform your children that monitors, identified by orange vests, will be on the rink to supervise & control behavior on the rink. Monitors are to be respected & obeyed. Also, monitors have the authority to remove children from the rink if behavior is inappropriate / unruly.

  11. FEFC provides the music for skating. Music is chosen & approved by those who organize our skating events. Music is selected on the basis of being family friendly & for all age groups. With the exception of some “fun songs” (i.e., The Hokey Pokey), all music is by Christian artists. Since music is pre-selected & pre-approved, please tell your children not to bring their CD’s & request them to be played.

  12. FEFC strongly encourages fellowship between members; however, during skating, please remember that your primary responsibility is watching your children.


Dress Code:

Modest dress is expected from all who attend FEFC events. For example, mini-skirts, short-shorts, halter 

tops, spaghetti straps, midriffs, tank tops, pants hanging off the waist, &/or otherwise revealing apparel are not 

allowed. This is out of respect & courtesy for ALL participants. 


PLEASE NOTE: The only video taping allowed at field trips / activities is that which is done by members of FEFC or their immediate families.
