Additional Facts & Tips:

  • Figure skaters should sharpen their skates approximately every 25-30 hours of ice time
  • Hockey players every 10-15 hours
  • If you're sliding on routine turns and edges, it's time to have your skates sharpened
  • Tip: Keep an index card with sharpening dates in your skate bag. This will also alert you to the last time you had your skates sharpened, and remind you when it's time again
