Can your young skater skate the length of the rink with no help? Are they looking for an extra challenge? In our Small Blades program, skaters develop their edge control, body position, cross overs, and stopping. Our program focuses on confidence building and skill development through fun activities and games. During the season, skaters will have the opportunity to transition to speed skates if they wish.
In the Small Blades program, skaters need the following equipment:
Helmet – Speed skating helmet or hockey helmet
Gloves – cut-resistant
Knee Pads – soft, volleyball style
Neck Guard – hockey style with bib (ballistic nylon or Kevlar)
Shin Pads – hard-shell soccer style
Clothing – must have long sleeves and legs (no exposed skin)
Safety glasses – shatterproof eyewear (or full face visor)
