Skaters Essentials

Skaters Essentials

Figure skating is a beautiful and graceful sport, but it also requires a lot of equipment and accessories. A good skate bag is essential for carrying all of your gear to and from the rink. Here are some essentials to pack in your figure skate bag:

Skates: Of course, your skates are the most important item to pack. Make sure they are properly laced and tied before you put them in your bag.

Gloves or hand warmers: Cold hands can make it hard to grip your skates and perform your best. Pack a pair of gloves or hand warmers to keep your hands warm while you're skating.

Water bottle: Staying hydrated is important, especially if you'll be skating for a long time. Pack a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated.

Skate guards: Skate guards are essential for protecting your blades when you're walking around off the ice. Pack a pair of skate guards to keep your blades in good condition. Check out Al's Skate shop in Blackpool they have a great range of skate gaurds 

Towel & Soakers: Pack a small towel to wipe off your blades and soakers to soak up the extra moisture from your blades.

Extra hair ties or bobby pins: If you have long hair, it's a good idea to pack some extra hair ties or bobby pins in case you need to redo your hair in between sessions.

Skate tool: A skate tool is a small multi-purpose tool that can be used to adjust your skates and blades. It's a good idea to pack one in your skate bag in case you need to make any adjustments.

Spare laces: Pack a spare pair of laces in case one of your laces break.

Skate sharpening stone: A skate sharpening stone is used to keep your blades in good condition. It's a good idea to pack one in your Skate bag in case you need to sharpen your blades while you're at the rink.

In addition to these essentials, you may also want to pack a change of clothes, a small first aid kit, and any other personal items you may need. Remember to keep your skate bag organized and your skates in a separate compartment to prevent them from getting damaged. Happy skating!
