HOW TO DRESS FOR LESSONS
Skating Clothing Rule of thumb: Form-fitting clothes that stretch are better than tight, restrictive or oversized clothes that restrict movement. An instructor/coach needs to see a skater’s body alignment to give proper advice and feedback about technique, so form-fitting clothing that allows for movement is better. A skater’s hair should be tied back in a pony, not in their eyes. (Never wear bobby pins on the ice for safety, loose pins are a major trip hazard.) Snowplow Sam skaters should wear a bicycle helmet, snow pants, and wear mittens.
