7. How often do skates need to be sharpened?
Skates should be sharpened about once a season or about every 10 - 15 hours of skating.
8. Do you have a phone number that we can call to ask questions?
We only provide customer service by e-mail if your question is not answered here or on the website. You can request a consultation by phone in Member Services by logging into your account for an adminsitrative fee. We encourage you to use the Member Services in your account to resolve your situation first.
9. Why was I charged a different fee from someone else I know in Toronto that regisistered for the same program?
There can be a variety of reasons why program fees differ, however we reserve the right to change program rates depending on the time that you register. The fee that you paid for a program is what you agreed to paying at the time of your registration.
10. How does the Learn to Skate Level system work?
In our Learn to Skate program coaches teach the same skills to all skaters in levels 1, 2 and 3. We DO NOT seperate learn to skate classes by level or age. The only different between these levels is skill level of skaters. As skaters progress through the levels their skills in the elements along with skaters that are more or less experienced skaters. If you have concerns about your child being in a class that is too advanced or not advanced enough the best ways to resolve this are going to Member Services in your account and requesting a class change, arranging private lessons in Toronto or request a consultation by phone.
11. How should my child be dressed for skating classes?
Our learn to skate classes are indoors at room temperature so they can just dress the same way they would at school and don't need to wear jackets or snow pants. For the Tots Learn to Skate Program in Toronto tots should be wearing gloves to protect their hands. This is in case they fall so that other tots do not step on their hands with their skates that can result in cuts.
12. I have paid for membership and didn't receive my e-mail, how can I access my account?
The common reason that membership account details are not received is because an error was made in the e-mail or it was caught in spam. You may need to check your spam folder to see if it has arrived there. Due to high volume we are not providing customer support for accounts at this time and we appologize for the inconvenience.
