Junior Blades Ice Skating Club teaches their members to figure skate therefore please ensure that you wear figure skates and not hockey boots.
When getting your skates from Boot Hire please specify that they must be figure skates. NO HOCKEY SKATES!!!
Ensure that the boots are fastened correctly before getting onto the ice. If you have your own figure skates please read our suggested way to lace them correctly for the benefit of your skating.
WHAT TO WEAR:
In the quest for continual improvement Junior Blades has decided that it will be compulsory for all Skaters to wear name badges as part of their uniform. This will help the coaches on the ice to address the children by name.
Name badges can be ordered from the Front desk. All our skaters are expected to wear their name badges. NO badge = NO skate
Hair to be neat, tidy and out of your face.
The JB Uniform is compulsory from Grade 1 onwards and consists of a turquoise t-shirt with the JB logo in black, which is available for purchase from the JB Front Desk inside the rink every Saturday morning. This can be worn with any black tracksuit pants or a black skirt. NO uniform (from Grade 1) = NO skate.
As of 19th March 2022: we will give leeway towards the uniforms as we realise that many skaters have outgrown their uniform since the club’s covid forced closure. If your uniform does not fit, you may wear plain black or plain turquoise or combination of black & turquoise in the interim.
Also available at the JB Front Desk are black sweatshirts with a turquoise JB logo as well as black tracksuits with a turquoise JB logo embroidered on the front of the jacket and the name of the club embroidered on the back of the jacket.
When the skater passes a grade, a badge for that particular grade can be purchased and then sewn onto the sleeve of either the sweatshirt or the tracksuit.
