Many rinks offer ice sleds for use during un-crowded public skating times. Ice sleds offer a seated option for skaters who cannot use their legs or who have balance issues. There is no fee to use an ice sled. Entrance is free at DCR-operated rinks, but privately-operated rinks may charge a fee, so be sure to check with the rink.
If you'd like more assistance with skating or want the chance to play games while out on the ice, you can attend seasonal skating programs offered by the Universal Access Program. These programs run from November through March every year.
