4 players – 60 minutes (15 minutes of skating/instruction time per player)
MUST also bring shin pads and a helmet to the session.
Is it okay for players to wear their real skates?
Yes, the skatemill will not do any damage to a player’s skates.
What happens if a player falls on the skatemill?
All players will wear a safety harness when on the skatemill. The instructor will demonstrate the proper way to fall if a player is ever to fall on the skatemill which allows the player to simply hang without getting hurt.
How often will I have to sharpen my skates after being on the Skatemill?
Depending on the player’s weight, the skatemill will dull the skate blades 1.5 to 2 times faster than on the ice.
How does the skatemill compare to real ice?
To compare the skatemill to the ice is like comparing a swimmer swimming in a calm lake where there’s no current and a swimmer swimming up a river where they’re faced with a current. Facing the current will make it more challenging, but will yield in greater and faster gains once stepping back onto the ice.
