Reminder of Equipment Requirements

Proper equipment and attire is essential to ensuring the safety of our skaters on the ice.  And equipment needs change as skaters increase in skill level and speed. Please review the list of equipment requirements for your skaters group to ensure you are complient. If you find you need a particular item, a great place to order online is: I Love Speed Skating.   Please talk to your coach if you have any questions or concerns or send an email to the Club.
