Skates, Safety and What to Wear
Skate boots should provide a snug fit. Your foot should not move around inside the boot. The closer the fit, the more control you will have. Lace skates by crisscrossing the laces snugly around each hook. To ensure proper support for the ankle, the tightest point of lacing should be at the instep. Wear several layers of clothing to start, as you warm-up you can discard a layer or two. Comfort and freedom of movement are important. Try not to wear clothing that might be restrictive. Sweats or warm-ups are ideal. Helmets are suggested for beginner skaters and are recommended for all activities. Remember to bring gloves. Parents and spectators are not allowed on the ice during activities.
