How to Dress Like a Skater:
Your skater’s safety is top priority. You can prepare your skater for the ice with the appropriate skates and clothing.
The following are basic items that your skater will need: sharpened, single edge skates with good ankle support (figure skates are preferred, but hockey skates will work for lower levels), gloves/mittens, layers, hat/earmuffs/headbands, comfortable pants (wind pants, leggings etc.) and light socks.
Clothing NOT recommended for skaters is: double edge blade skates (skaters cannot control the skates), heavy jackets, snow pants and definitely no jeans. Check out the following documents to help your skater be ready for the ice:
