REQUIRED EQUIPMENT

Skates:

For CanSkate, hockey or figure skates are acceptable

We reccomend the following stores for the purchase of skates: 

           Professional Skate   9216-51 Ave

           United Cycle   16972-111Ave

Before purchasing skates check carefully for:

  • Proper fit
  • Firm ankle support
  • Correct blade placement

Helmets:

  • CSA approved helmets are MANDATORY.
  • A hockey helmet is the ONLY acceptable helmet as they wrap around the back of the head and are designed to withstand repeated bumps.
  • Fit should be snug.

Warm Clothing:

  • Clothing should provide warmth but not restrict movement.
  • Layering of sweat suits, sweaters, ski jackets and long underwear or leotards is recommended. Bulky snowsuits can hinder movement.
  • Warm mittens or gloves are a must.

Parents do not accompany their children on the ice.
