Please remember your hats and gloves. Long pants or tights are required for participation in group lessons. It’s always better to dress in layers so you may take off a layer or two if needed. Selecting the proper skate size is very important. Your skates should be approximately a half size smaller than your shoe size. You want your skates to be snug, but not so tight that you’re uncomfortable. You should be able to wiggle your toes. Lace your skates tightly, starting at the bottom and lacing to the top, not skipping any eyelets. We hope these suggestions will help make your visit a very pleasant one and you’ll come back to see us again.
