Skates

The club has a limited inventory of skates available for loan or rent. Inventory is updated for 2017-2018 season.

  • loan - single time use during club practice hours
  • rent - prolonged use, until the end of the season, at cost ($)

Loans

Before Dec 1st, club skates can be loaned out during weekend practices to guest skaters and club members. Contact a club officer at practice to gain access to our inventory of skates at the rink and check out a pair for the duration of club practice. Skates must be returned at the end of the club practice!

After Dec 1st, club skates will be loaned out to club members only. Each club member will also only be entitled to 1-2 loans; after that, skates must rented for the duration of the season.

Rentals

Skates may be rented by club members at anytime during the season subject to the following conditions:

  • $30 rental fee + $50 refundable deposit
  • Deposit is refunded if skates are returned by March 31st (rink closes in mid-March). Refund is forfeit on or after April 1st.
  • Deposit is requested in the form of a check. Check will be destroyed if skates are returned by March 31st and cashed on April 1st if not.
  • A cash deposit is also accepted, however, a refund may take a few days to process. Same return deadlines apply.

DAPER Skates

Additional figure skates are available from DAPER, but are subject to limited availability and cost $5 per daily session of use. DAPER skates are available whenever there is someone from DAPER available to open the skate room in Johnson Rink. This is hit-or-miss during the term (renters go to the front desk outside the rink, pay for the rental, and the desk calls for someone to open the room, which can take anywhere between 5 and 20 minutes). During IAP, the club tries to make arrangement in advance to have the skate room staffed.

Purchasing Skates

The club recommends the following skate shops for purchasing figure skates and sharpening blades:

Lockers

The club has several lockers at the rink available for skaters to store their skates during the season. Club members can rent a locker for $5 for the season.
