With the 2015/16 season just beginning, Thames Centre has received expressions of concern expressed regarding unsupervised children playing around the track with balls, etc.

The recreation facility staff would like to remind all of the arena users of the following policy that was put into effect in 2012. There are signs outlining this policy in the public areas, as well as a track use policy which has been posted on the north wall of the walking track area.

A summary of the policy on parental supervision and code of conduct is:

  • Parents / guardians are responsible for their children at all times. Children under 13 years of age must be supervised by an adult at all times. Please be aware you and your unsupervised Child /Children will be asked to leave immediately.
  • No balls, pucks, horseplay, mini or hockey sticks allowed on the walking track or in the general public areas, including the halls outside of the dressing rooms.
  • The walking track is for personal exercise only. No TEAM PRACTICES OR TRAINING is allowed.
  • Failure to abide by these rules will result in banishment from the Complex / Facility.
This policy was put into effect to ensure the safety and enjoyment of the facility by all user-groups.  Please respect the arena staff and other users at all times so that we ensure that DMHA and its teams will continue to be welcome in the arena.
