Please Note

Layering warm, comfortable clothing such as a warm-up suit, knit pants with a sweater or sweatshirt with long sleeves are highly recommended. Do not wear bulky ski pants, jackets, or hockey pants for the lesson. These do not allow for good movement. Gloves or mittens and helmet (bike or hockey) are also highly recommended!

Properly fitted skates are essential. Skates must fit snugly; do not layer socks. Lace or buckle skates so that the boot is snug and secure. If your child has never worn ice skates, we recommend they wear figure skates for (at least) the first four classes before switching to hockey skates. Figure skates will allow the child to get his/her balance much quicker than with a hockey skate. The smallest skate size available for rental is a children’s size 9.
