Taking young kids to games - need their own ticket?

I'd like to take my 3 kids (age 4, 2, 2) to a game in March, but since they're young and probably won't make it past the 2nd period, I'm not relishing buying full priced tickets for all three of them.

Is there an age where I would be required to buy a separate ticket for my kids? Or are the SBP staff pretty loose about letting kids sit on laps such that I could just buy one ticket for an adult and say one of my 2-year olds?

I'm not completely sure on this one but im going to have to assume that you only need to pay for the number of seats you're going to use. In that case, I would believe that small children could get in for free if they sat on your lap. Your best bet would be to call the box office and ask'em.

I don't know for sure, but I have heard that most major sports do not allow anyone into the game without a ticket, regardless of age.

Can anyone provide specific info about the Sens?

Child Ticket Policy
Most Scotiabank Place events do not require a child who is less than two-years-old to have a ticket unless they are to occupy a seat. This policy will vary by event, so please inquire at time of ticket purchase.
So it looks like you will have to call to verify.

I called capital tickets for you, to get official word. But was on hold 20 minutes and am very impatient, sorry, haha.

February, March and April games go on sale jan 13th, so says the holding voice 7 times.

As far as I know, if they will sit in your lap then no you do not need to buy another ticket.

Call 599-FANS (3267).

Psst. Babysitter. Do *yourself* a favour with a night out, and the folks around you.

And really, are they even going to be aware of the game? Maybe for a period like you say, but after that, they're either bored and want to run around, or just sleeping.

And if you get two two-year olds running around tasting the gum stuck to different seats, and a four-year old throwing popcorn on a fan's head two rows below, you might miss the second and third period too. Sounds like a handful!

check the website for the family fun games. You can get tickets for $20 or so.

If a kid is too big to sit on your lap for a game, and not bother your neighbour, then yeah, they need a seat. A 3 year old genearlly looks too old to get in free.

4, 2 and 2? That sounds like a very busy house.

Take'm to a 67s/Olympiques game, or a Minor Hockey Game.

Heck, there are other Junior teams around also (Nepean Raiders, Gloucester, and many more I'm sure)

Your 4 year old might know the difference, but the 2 year old's won't. Your wallet will know a BIG difference.

Unfortunately, live NHL games are no longer for families

The rule that's been used in the past was that children under 2 are allowed in without a ticket; children 2 and older needed their own ticket. Best to check with the Senators/SBP in case it's changed; it's been several years since we brought my daughter when she was 1. How strictly enforced it is, I can't say.

I took my six year old grandson and it was a waste of a ticket besides being annoying for other fans and he was really well behaved !

In some arenas kids 4 and uder are not permitted to go to the games.I do know the sbc is looking at this its more of a safety issue more then anything.
