Skaters registering for any of our programs MUST have the following skating attire:
- Skates (Figure Skates or Hockey Skates. They must be sharpened if brand new, or not used recently)
- Hockey Helmet (must be CSA standard, cage optional)
- Winter Jacket
- Slush/Ski pants
A CSA approved ice helmet (hockey) is mandatory for PreCanSkate and CanSkate (Face mask is optional), including parents in the Parent&Tot program.
All Skate Canada member clubs and skating schools who offer a CanSkate program must ensure all CanSkate and Adult CanSkate participants up to and including Stage 5 must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet while on the ice.
This policy also applies to all other Skate Canada programs, therefore anyone who lacks good control/balance when skating forward, backward and has difficulty stopping, as well as maneuvering around obstacles on the ice must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet.
