United Cycle and Pro Skate in Edmonton both have a good selection of used skates in stock.
While our newest skaters need to be warm while on the ice, sometimes a large and puffy snow suit can make it difficult for them to MOVE!
We encourage the use of layers that provide warmth and movement. A long sleeved shirt on the base, then a insulated layer like a fleece jackey or hoody with a water proof or resistant outer layer helps when skaters are first learning how to skate.
Warm, snug fitted mittens are a must as is a CSA approved hockey helmet for all of our Canskate and Powerskating programs. While a hockey cage on the helmet is not required it can prevent bumped chins, cheeks and noses on our newer skaters that tend to be a bit wobbly starting out.
Have any more questions? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to provide the necessary information.
Players box areas are designated for Coaches and skaters only. We ask that parents enjoy watching their child participate from the designated "heated" seating area. This allows skaters to remain focused on the class activities during their program time.
As a guideline for Intermediate and senior levels, if a male parent is required to tie a skater's skates, they should do so outside of the dressing room. If a male must enter for anything else, they must announce themselves before entering to ensure all skaters are dressed and permission is given to enter the dressing room. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
