Good point. Rinks can go anywhere from no interest to strict. I'm disappointed by the uninterested ones, and by the sheer amount of them. Certification can be a pain, but it keeps the riff-raff out.
My rink is in between, if it's for something like the house league, then you don't really need to have certification. For travel hockey, you do.
