Park City Ice Arena Updates

Updated Return to Play Policies

After many discussions and careful consideration, The Ice Arena is discontinuing the Ice Arena's Return to Play policy as previously outlined. From this point forward the Ice Arena's quarantine requirement is aligning with the guidance of the Summit County Health Department for the general public and businesses. Quarantine durations for various circumstances continue to get more complex and more changes are anticipated in the near future. Given this, we have decided the best way to promote compliance and a safe return to the Ice Arena, is for patrons to work directly with the Health Department to determine their eligible date of return.

 

Patrons and staff are required to comply with local and state quarantine requirements. Generally, an individual can return after 7 days and a negative test or 10 days with no test, so long as they have not had symptoms for the last 24 hours. Exposures resulting from a positive test in one's household are not eligible for a reduced quarantine and we recommend contacting the Summit County Health Department for such cases. The Health Department is a valuable resource for determining quarantine duration and eligibility to return to the Ice Arena.

 

Symptoms include fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or small, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or headache.

 

If an Ice Arena patron inquires when they can return after testing positive or being exposed to a positive case, please direct them to the Summit County Health Department for guidance.

Summit County COVID-19 Hotline: 435-333-0050 (Mon. – Fri. 9am – 5pm)

While we are seeing a declining trend in transmission, this change has the potential to increase the spread of COVID-19. So, to that effect when communicating the change please be sure to emphasize the importance of continued efforts of symptom watching, hygiene, distancing (where possible), and mask compliance.


2021 High Performance Figure Skating Camp

Registration opens March 1st!


Freestyle Sessions

As we are still in the High Risk category, Freestyle limits will remain capped at 15 skaters. Skaters are reminded to keep at least 6 feet at all times, in the lobby and on the ice. We ask that bags and accessories not be brought on the ice to minimize congregating at the boards.

If a session is full, please register for the waitlist. With skaters taking breaks and no-shows many skaters have been able to get off the waitlist. Waitlisted skaters must be in the lobby, ready to skate to take an available spot.

That being said, please make sure you cancel any sessions 24 hours in advance for a refund and so we can work through the waitlist.

If you skate the season pass skates or the afternoon freestyle sessions, please make sure you check in with the cashier.


Park City Ice Arena will closed for Maintenance August-September

Park City Ice Arena will be closing for 6 weeks in August and early September for maintenance. The ice will be taken out for concrete repairs and repainting, an every 5 years occurrence. Please plan accordingly.


WEAR YOUR MASK! WASH YOUR HANDS! STAY 6 FEET APART!

Covid is not over. We have had a few positive cases of Covid amongst our patrons lately. Please stay diligent about wearing your mask correctly, staying 6 feet apart and washing your hands regularly.

TRYOUT DETAILS

  • Tryouts are ONLY for skaters who are new to the club or who did not try out for the show last year.

  • Skaters are allowed to bring and use props for their try out video

  • Music can be found and downloaded from this page (to the right)
  • Judges will score each skater based on various factors. While skating skills will be considered, judges really want to see skaters perform for entertainment value and "wow factor".

She recently became a USFS TRIPLE Gold Medalist by passing her Senior Free Skate and Senior Solo Free Dance tests. As a Park City High School senior, she performs a daily balancing act between academics, clubs and activities, dance team and her training. Hailey embodies the Get Up spirit and we are proud to have her represent FSCPC.


Congrats to Coach Tiffany on her PSA Master Free Skate rating!

Congratulations to coach Tiffany on achieving her Professional Skaters Association Master Rating in Free Skate in January. This is a huge accomplishment that has taken years of hard work and dedication to accomplish. Tiffany is the ONLY Master Rated Free Skating Coach in the state of Utah!

Our club and our athletes are so lucky to have multiple PSA rated coaches on staff, including 3 out of 5 Master Rated coaches in the entire state. In total, our club coaches hold 5 master ratings with the PSA, in addition to registered and certified ratings. Pretty awesome!


Congrats to our Newest Gold Medalists!

We are so proud and excited to welcome new Gold Medalists to our club! Way to go! YEARS of hard work have paid off!

Good luck to our Novice Ladies & Our Juvenile & Intermediate Competitors

Even though the 2022 season begins in March, we are still working to finish up competing for the 2021 season. After the cancellation of the live Championship Series events in November, US Figure Skating reconfigured this season, yet again.

Four of our novice ladies are competing in the 2021 USFS Championship Series virtual competition. The top 30 finishers will be named to the USFS High Performance National Development Team. 

In March, our Juvenile and Intermediate competitors will be submitting audition videos virtually for a chance to be named to the USFS High Performance National Development Team.

Best of luck to all! We are so proud of all of our skaters, especially during this difficult season of constant change.
