We offer a limited Skate Purchase-Buyback Program for beginning skaters

  • We have a limited supply of good quality beginner used skates available. They sell for $85 to $90 a pair depending on brand. Please email or call Nancy Harrington (harribunch@att.net; 203-804-0500) to check for availability and make an appointment for a fitting.

  • Outgrew the skates ? Return them to us for a refund of $40.

If we don't have the right pair of skates for you, you can purchase skates from Bensen-Ferguson. They are working with us to provide good quality new or used skates (depending on inventory) at a reasonable price for our members. Skate purchase at the store will include blade sharpening and a pair of soakers. You can visit the store at the following address:

First Time Lacing Up A Pair Of Skates?
 
Follow our easy 6-step guide
  1. Loosen most of the laces to insert foot.

  2. Make sure the heel is all the way back in the skate.

  3. Tighten the laces across the instep up to the ankle. (this supports the ankle)

  4. Tie a single knot, then lace the top of the boot more loosely, with the knee and ankle slightly flexed. (this allows the knee to bend properly)

  5. Make sure there are no floppy lace ends or loops. (tuck them in or cut them off)

  6. Enjoy skating with a perfectly laced pair of skates!
