What you Need to Know

SKATES +

  • You must provide your own ice skates. Skate rental is not available.
  • One pair of socks only: wear them when going to try on skates. Socks should be higher than the top of the skate boot.
  • Wear protective guards when not on ice.
  • Do not remove picks from figure skates.
  • Skates, even brand new ones, must be sharpened before the first lesson.
  • Leather skates with laces are preferred. Molded plastic skates or skates with buckles and/or straps are not recommended.
  • Skates should be laced up using all holes and hooks. When tightening the skates, please ensure that the laces are pulled as tight as possible so that the foot is secure in the boot. Skater must be able to stand straight up in the skates, without their ankles leaning in and out. A proper fitting skate is usually half to one size smaller than the shoe size.
  • Always dry skate blades off after skating lessons and do not store the skate with the guards on.

CSA-APPROVED HELMETS +

Hockey helmets and face protectors sold in Canada must meet safety standards set by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). Hockey helmets must have labeling with the date of manufacture and have a chin strap. The CSA-approved logo will be found on the back of the hockey helmet affixed to the outer shell of the helmet. It is important that the helmet fit properly in order to ensure proper protection.

A hockey helmet should fit snug to prevent any shifting and maximize protection. Make sure the chinstrap can be adjusted so it gently makes contact under the chin when fastened.

For an adjustable helmet, open it to the largest setting and gradually begin to downsize the helmet until a comfortably snug fit is achieved. The helmet should rest on the head so that the rim is one finger width above the eyebrow and making contact with the top of your head.

Although most helmets are lined with protective foam, some helmets will feel better than others. Try on different brands of helmets for fit and comfort. All CSA-certified helmets have a sticker indicating their certification. Participants without the proper helmet will not be permitted to participate in their lesson. Bicycle, ski, snowboard and other types of helmets are not permitted.

PROGRESS REPORTS - SKATING LESSONS +

Students previously registered in Junior, Intermediate and Figure Skating Skills and Teen Skating are asked to bring their progress card to the first lesson. The card will be returned at the end of the session.

SKATING AND HOCKEY TIPS +

How To Fit Hockey Equipment

When purchasing hockey equipment, the most important aspect to consider is that the equipment is properly fitted. When equipment is not suitably fitted, the player is exposed to injury. Three important factors should be stressed when evaluating hockey equipment: (A) that the equipment is in proper condition, (B) that the equipment is properly maintained throughout its life span and (C) that the equipment fits properly.
