ADULTskate Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. For insurance purposes and safety considerations, all skaters must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet until the completion of stage 5 or strong skating skills. It is at your discretion if you have previous skating experience or you can be assessed by a coach.

NO. Unfortunately we do not have any helmets available to borrow.
