Required Gear

  • Helmets are mandatory for all ages and levels in Learn to Skate. Hockey helmet with facemask is recommended. Bike, ski and skateboard helmets will work.
  • Ice Skates: Rental skates are provided if you do not have your own.
  • Bring gloves or mittens.
  • Warm clothes: Layers are best, no jeans (Please do not dress your skater up in full hockey gear. If hockey is your interest, as they progress in their skating skills, we will slowly add pieces of equipment.
  • Thin socks. (We all think thick socks are better, not in ice skates)
