The Family/Elementary School session for grades K-5 runs from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and the Middle School session for grades 6-8 runs from 9 to 11 p.m.

All skaters must be accompanied by a parent or guardian on arrival to the check-in table each night and picked up inside the facility when leaving. Parents must also complete a new 2016-2017 registration form for each child. The registration form may be downloaded from the PRT website - - by clicking on the "Skate Rattle and Roll" link. Registration forms also will be available at the check-in table. The admission fee is $5.00, which includes skate rental. Students may rent roller blades for an additional $3.00. Concessions will be available for purchase.
