Learn to Skate Levels

What you should wear to a ‘Learn to Skate’ Class?

  • Bike or Hockey Helmet. Bike helmets should cover the back of the head and should sit two fingers above the skater’s eyebrows. Hockey helmets offer excellent protection. Make sure your name is on the helmet.
  • Children ages 7 and below are required to wear a helmet. Above age 7 helmets are strongly recommended, but are up to a parent’s discretion. Helmets should be worn through Level 4.
  • Skates: Either Hockey or Figure. For older or taller skaters, hockey skates generally give better ankle support and do not have toe picks that many novice skaters tend to trip over. Skate rentals are included during your lesion session and are on a first come basis.
  • Dress Warm. Remember this is an ice rink and it is always cold. Skaters should dress warmly and be able to comfortably move around.
  • Gloves: Either wool or Hockey Gloves. Gloves both keep your hands warm and protect your hands from ice burns when you fall.
  • Knee Pads. Knee pads are not recommended for any beginner skater, but should you feel that you would like to wear them, please make sure that the knee pads are under the skaters clothing. Having the knee pads exposed causes skaters to slide and be unable to get up from a fall.
  • No parents or guardians are allowed on the ice wearing shoes at any time.
