We strongly advise against ordering online. We suggest getting fitted for figure skates at a true skate shop, such as Edge Skate Shop, in West Orange, NJ.
Every skate manufacturer sizes differently, and your skater needs skates with ankle support. Also, all new skate blades will need to be sharpened. Double blades & expandable boots are not permitted. All beginners should wear proper figure skates. (Even those who aspire to play hockey should start on figure skates before switching to hockey skates.)
Helmets and gloves are mandatory for all beginners. Multisport, ski or hockey helmets are recommended. Clothing should be warm & comfortable. We suggest snow pants or snow suits for the little ones.
All skaters must be registered PRIOR to the first day of class they plan on attending. On the first day of a new session, arrive at least 20 minutes early to check-in. Payment is due in full prior to the student taking the ice.
Only registered students are allowed on the ice during skate school hours. FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL RESULT IN ELIMINATION OF THE REGISTERED STUDENT FROM THE SKATE SCHOOL PROGRAM.
Class assignments are subject to change as per the Director.
A parent or guardian must be present in the rink during the class hour.
