FAQ about the beginner's course.
Do I need to know how to skate?
No, we will teach you everything! Our beginner's course consists of 10 practices (3 for the junior team) where we will teach you how to skate, fall safely and play. We'll also teach you the rules of the game and game strategy.
I'm afraid I'll fall and hurt myself!
Don't worry! The first thing we'll teach you is to fall safely on your knees and elbows. We won't push you into doing something you're not ready for yet. Take it in your own pace.
Do I need to bring my own gear?
If you have gear of you own. Otherwise, you'll get to borrow gear from us for the course. If you love skating and want to keep practicing with us you'll need to get your own gear. If you join the junior team you have the option of renting from us. You'll need: a helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, mouth guard and skates. We are more than happy to give you advice and guide you when buying your gear. It's a jungle! You can find some tips here.
Can I join even though i don't want to skate?
Of course! We would love to have you in our club either way. There are a lot of roles you can have off-skate; NSO (non-skating official), bench coach, lineup coach or just help out during practice and games.
