All you need are skates, a CSA-approved hockey helmet, long pants, mittens, warm sweater or jacket. Dress in layers – it will get warm! Both figure skates and hockey style skates are fine for our Learn to Skate programs. Leather, lace up skates are preferable to vinyl. Molded plastic skates with velcro closures are not recommended. BobSkates with the double blade are not suitable for our programs
CSA-approved hockey helmets are mandatory for all CanSkaters until they have completed Level 5.
(Bicycle helmets, skiing helmets, etc. do not meet the standards required.)
