Are you looking for skates or gear for the upcoming season?
Don’t wait until the last minute to purchase skates and if your little one has skates please check to make sure they have been freshly sharpened before putting them on the ice! (last seasons sharpening isn’t a good idea). Also check for rust…
All the above stores also carry skating tights, dresses, guards, helmets, etc. All 3 are great places to start…and they all have websites!
A great place for sharpening that is nice and close is at Gord’s which is located inside The Plex in Port Elgin. Here is his facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/Gords-Pro-Shop-Imprints-137732098…/
If you have purchased skates from Canadian Tire or a dept store they normally won’t come sharpened so please make sure to check this before leaving the store. There is nothing like your little one stepping on the ice for the first time with no edge….they will be super sad and very frustrated.
All the sites above offer excellent quality starters skates right up to competitive and many have buy back options. We suggest a good pair of skates – it will make their time on the ice much more enjoyable! If you have any questions please post a comment and we will try to get you the info you need!
For all the older more seasoned skaters, now is the time to try on your skates! To make the trek for that perfect sharpening and to make sure your tights and warm up gear all fit! If they don’t…now is the time to make those back to skating purchases.
See you on the ice soon!
