Skating Tips and Tricks
Wear Good Socks!
Socks that are too short, or thin, can be painful when you get out on the ice. If you aren't wearing them when you come in, then bring a pair of long and thick socks with you to the rink. This is a great way to avoid blisters!
Tighten Those Skates!
This is essential to skating well. If you can wiggle your ankles at all, the skates are too loose.
Skates that are too tight, on the other hand, can cause pain and numbness, so find that middle balance that is most comfortable and workable for you.
Don'tHug the Wall!
Take it from those who have learned to skate one bit at a time, hugging the wall is one of the worst things you can do for your balance. It seems scary to skate away from the wall, but keep your knees bent slightly and march carefully as you skate. You'll be amazed to see the difference it makes.
