The Skate Canada Spectator Camera Policy is in place at events to protect the safety of athletes and to ensure a distraction-free environment for all spectators.
Personal photography is permitted by spectators but cannot impact the viewing ability of others. All photos taken during the event must be for personal use only and captured on a small digital camera or mobile device.
The following is not permitted at Skate Canada events:
- Flash photography to ensure the safety of the athletes
- Camera bags and large camera equipment such as tripods
- Professional cameras and/or detachable lenses greater than 6 inches or 200 mm
No video recording of any type is permitted within the venue during the competition.
Unauthorized sale, commercial use and/or third-party distribution of photos from events are strictly prohibited. Only accredited team members are permitted to videotape their skater or team from rinkside during practice.
Spectators who do not abide by these restrictions risk having their camera confiscated or being removed from the event by the venue security staff.
