FIRST DAY OF CLASS

- Instructors will give skaters their welcome packets.
PROPER SKATING ATTIRE
- Dress in thin layers
- Wear warm clothes (Nothing big and bulky-no ski suits, please)
- Gloves, not mittens
- One pair of thin socks- doubling up on socks or having them too thick may cause a blister
- Bike helmet required for 3, 4 & 5 year olds
- Figure skates-for the first time skater, these are easier to learn in because the long, flat blade provides more stability. If playing hockey is your goal, the switch to hockey skates may be made after a time of success with figure skates. Please consult your instructor.
