Care of Rental Skates

Speed skates have a different type of blade than hockey or figure skates and therefore need to be sharpened in a special way.  To enable the sharpening of our club skates to enhance skaters’ abilities, skates should be sharpened before the season, at least once a month and before events/meets.

Skaters from the Competitive group provide sharpening for a cost of $10.  Please contact Nalini Naidoo at nalini.naidoo@gmail.com  for sharpeners’ phone numbers.
