Helmets Available & Encouraged
The Pavilion encourages all skaters to wear a helmet while on the ice, especially children. We have loaner helmets available to use or you can bring your own. The sizes available are: Youth (Toddler- Age 5ish), XS/S, M/L and L/XL. All of The Pavilion’s loaner helmets are dual-certified which means that they comply with U.S. CPSC Bike and ASTM Skate safety standards.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission recommends that ice skaters use hockey, bicycle, ski or skateboard helmets. If you want to follow that recommendation, it may be best to look for a helmet certified to the ASTM Skateboard standard, F 1492, or even dual certified to the skateboard and bicycle helmet standards. They have some multi-impact capability and more coverage in the rear than a bike helmet.
