As per Skate Canada’s helmet regulations for CanSkate programs, skaters must have a CSA approved hockey helmet. All CanSkate and Adult CanSkate participants up to and including Stage Five (5) must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet while on the ice. This policy is enforced during all skating activities including competitions, family skate days or any other special on ice activities throughout the season for this level of skater.
Although optional, helmets with cages / face guards are highly recommended for young skaters and beginning skaters of all ages. View the Skate Canada Helmet Use Policy document.
Please note that skaters who do not have a proper fitting CSA approved hockey helmet will NOT be allowed on the ice.
