AdultSkate will give skaters the tools for amazing success!

What will I need?
All skaters will need a CSA approved hockey helmet. Ski, bicycle and multi use helmets are not acceptable. Skaters should dress in warm layers, with mittens, splash/snow pants and a jacket or sweater. Good quality hockey skates or figure skates will make a world of difference. Skaters who have passed Stage 5 CanSkate skills may choose to skate without a helmet.
