Skaters should wear warm, comfortable clothing. However, do not overdress skaters- once they are moving around, they become quite warm.Remember, the more clothing, the less mobility a skater has. Also, bulky clothing makes it very difficult for coaches to assess body movement.
Helmets approved by the CSA are mandatory for skaters who have not yet passed Stage 5. Please do not use bicycle helmets. After the skater passes Stage 5, it is up to the parent to decide when the skater no longer needs to wear a helmet.
