Finding Good Quality Skates & Equipment

Even the youngest of skaters experience more success with the right equipment. Skates must be lace up type skates.


We highly recommend finding a good quality used skate rather than a molded or plastic inexpensive new skate. A better quality leather boot will provide a snugger fit and a much more confident stride in even our newest skaters!

Plastic skates with buckles are not recommended.


United Sport & Cycle and Pro Skate in Edmonton both have a good selection of used skates in stock.

Dressing for Success

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 CanPower 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.
