First-Day PreCanSkate and CanSkate Checklist

Thank you for choosing Silver Blades! We are looking forward to having your child take skating lessons with us. Here is a reminder about essential on-ice items: 

  • Skaters must wear a CSA-approved hockey helmet—any other type of helmet is not sufficient
  • Skaters must wear gloves or mittens
  • Sharpened skates* (hockey skates or figure skates are equally fine at the CanSkate levels)

All of these items are required to be allowed on the ice. And water-resistant bottoms such as snowpants are highly recommended for at least the first few sessions of PreCanSkate. Please come prepared!

Before the first class, please allow yourself 15 minutes to arrive, obtain your child's name badge, and get ready for the session.
