Skate Canada Spectator Camera Policy
The Skate Canada Spectator Camera Policy is in place at events to protect the safety and privacy of athletes and to ensure a distraction free environment for all spectators.
Spectators are permitted to use small point and shoot cameras for their personal use only. The following are not permitted at Skate Canada events:
- No flash photography
- No camera bags in venue
- No use of professional cameras and/or detachable lenses
- No camera shall produce a visual and/or audible interference of other fans’ enjoyment of the event.
- Any resale of photography or posting photos on professional websites is strictly prohibited
- Absolutely no video recording on any device such as a camcorder, digital camera, mobile telephone or any other device with video recording capabilities is allowed.
Only accredited coaches and team managers may be permitted to videotape their own skater/team from rinkside during that skater’s/team’s practice or performance. If athletes wish to obtain a video of their programs, they may purchase a copy from the licensed video distributor on site if applicable.
Spectators not abiding by these restrictions risk having their camera confiscated by venue security staff. Additionally, Skate Canada reserves the right to restrict use of other types of cameras should they feel the quality and/or type of camera fail to protect the athletes’ and/or event’s interests.
