Skates needs to be sharpened about every 3-4 weeks for beginner skaters. For skaters that can do crossovers, about every second week. Your coach can also check if they need to be sharpened if you are unsure Gallery
Skates can be sharpened by putting them in the basket in our equipment room, with your skater’s name written on masking tape (pen and masking tape is in basket) and a $5.00 bill inside the boot. Skates will not be sharpened without $5.00 inside the boot. Skates can be put into the basket on Thursday after practice and picked up the following week, or after practice on Tuesday if you only skate on Tuesdays.
Coach Bill will hold a skate sharpening lesson after practice at a later date for those of you who are interested in learning how to sharpen at home
