In response to rising case numbers in NSW, if you have visited Victoria anytime since July 1st, or have attended any reported case location listed on the NSW Health website (, do not purchase tickets as you will be refused entry to the rink.  All patrons must sanitise their hands when entering, and may be subject to temperature checking upon arrival.  If you are feeling unwell do not come to the rink and seek medical advice.  We are doing our best to keep the rink a safe environment and ask that you follow all staff directions, continue to social distance wherever possible and practice good hygiene so that we can continue to provide a place for you to skate. We thank you for your continued support of Canterbury Olympic Ice Rink.



We are very happy to be back up and running for public skating, skate school classes and in-house ice sports club training and events.

We would like to remind everyone of our terms and conditions of entry during this time.

1. Social distancing must be maintained wherever possible (1.5m apart). We understand that with skating activities this may not always be practical, but we ask that all skaters respect one another and do not congregate in groups on the ice.

2. Your contact details must be provided each time you visit the rink and is a requirement as part of our COVID-19 Safety Plan. This is done either upon arrival for public sessions or through a pre-booking system for ice sports training and skate school classes.

3. The rink is currently adopting a cashless environment as part of our COVID-19 Safety Plan, so all payments including at the front door and in the canteen will be with card payments only.

4. If you are feeling unwell stay at home. You may be temperature checked whilst at the rink. COIR has the right to ask you to leave the premises if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19, or if you are not following these terms and conditions or act in a manner that may negatively impact on the health and safety of others.
