It is extremely important that skaters in the STAR 1 and higher programs come dressed properly for skating; this means: No Street Clothes, particularly no jeans. Skaters should wear leggings, tight fleece pants, skating skirts or dresses. On top, fitted fleece jacket, hoodies, etc. Hair should be pulled back in a ponytail or clipped so it doesn’t fall in their face.
Gloves – these are a must for warmth and safety. The little stretchy kind is very popular and inexpensive.
In respect of the coaches and the other participants, it is important that skaters be ready to go on the ice at the start of their session, we recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes early to give skaters a chance to warm-up, get their skates on, etc.
Skaters taking private lessons who are late may lose their time and if they don’t show up, it is common practice for coaches to charge for the time you had booked.
