Welcome to Laverton Skate Centre

Get Your Roll On!

Saturday 20th June 2020

To our wonderful staff, skaters, customers and families of Laverton Skate Centre, we do miss you and hope all are well.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our centre has been in a strict government enforced hibernation (indoor sports centre) since March 23rd and we were looking forward to potential for a return to restricted trading.

Restrictions in Victoria are looking to be eased from Monday 22nd June, however with a concerning rise in new Vic cases in the last few days, we have decided it best to err on the side of caution. We are very much a community focused business and will evaluate this new situation on a week by week basis.

Despite significant collateral effects endured by our closure, we strongly believe it to be in the best community interest for Laverton Skate Centre to remain closed at least another week to see how this new situation unfolds.

Our duty of care extends to all who enter our centre; be they staff, customers or stakeholders; and while we have gone above and beyond to adhere to all safety guidelines during the pandemic, we do not want to risk exacerbating this developing situation from a community health and safety standpoint.

We thank you all for your support and look forward to our doors opening again soon.

Thanks, take care and stay safe.

Monday 23rd March 2020

Dear wonderful skaters, customers and families of Laverton Skate Centre.

It saddens us to advise that after nearly 37 years of continuous operation, our beloved rink is now closed temporarily in compliance with trading restrictions during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

To our amazing staff, thank you dearly. We hope that we can emerge from this and you are able to resume your employment with us, (including resuming our own...).

Just like all in our community, we are entirely uncertain what lies ahead, but we are supportive of these strong measures necessary for our country; and especially for those who are most vulnerable.

Please - don't wait until you are forcibly told to stay home. Don't be 'that person still going to the beach' - you know what we mean. The time for complacency has well passed. Get yourself started now. Remain indoors as much as you possibly can, starting now. Spend time with family, pick up that book, get out that jigsaw puzzle, play that game you always wanted to.

If you do need to head out... again - that's **need** to (not want to, big difference), do remain a SOLID distance from others and practice exceedingly good hygiene. Think of yourself AND PLEASE ALSO think of others.

Think ahead and consider the potential future consequences of your choices and actions. Someone you know; someone they know; someone they've never known; might not then become a victim.

We thank you all for your support and look forward to our doors opening again soon.

Thanks, take care and stay safe.
All of us at Laverton Skate Centre
