A variety of safety equipment is required for each skater depending of their program level. A full equipment list for each program is listed on the individual program pages on our website. For more information about appropriate safety equipment, visit Speed Skate Canada.
New this year, tinted safety glasses are NOT allowed during competition. As well, you must have a strap for your glasses.
There are various places online you can purchase certified safety equipment. Visit our Equipment page for links and more information.
Closer to home, Overlander Sports in Yellowknife typically brings in a selection of certified helmets, safety glasses, cut-proof gloves and more at the start of the season for our skaters!
Will you need a Club suit this season?
The Club has one YKSSC suit left for sale (small adult size). The Club is also considering ordering more suits before the upcoming season. It would be useful to know ahead of time how many will be needed. If you are interested in buying a YKSSC suit this year, please contact Alexandre Larouche at firstname.lastname@example.org
