Moose Jaw is going to #ConquerABI – they made wearing helmets for kids under 12 mandatory at arenas

The City of Moose Jaw is enhancing safety measures at their indoor skating facilities.

As of Jan. 1, children under 12 must wear CSA approved helmets during public and free skates. Previously, the city had a mandatory policy for children ages six and under, but decided to up the age this year.

“We phoned around other places in the province of Saskatchewan, as well as outside the province in Alberta and Manitoba, and we averaged the age (in cities with mandatory helmet policies), and the age came out to be 12,” City of Moose Jaw recreation program supervisor Stephen Hall said.
