Helpful Tips

Skating Attire

Layered clothing works best with gloves. We do not recommend snowsuits, heavy gear or jeans as they hinder the skater's movement. It is highly recommended that skaters ages 6 and under wear a helmet.

Skates

Skates should fit snug and have ample ankle support. Tie the skates tight beginning at the toe box. Double runners are not allowed. We recommend starting in a figure skate. Tots 1 - 4 should start in figure skates; hockey skates are more difficult for beginning skaters until they have mastered some skills at which point they can switch to hockey skates.
