On the shooting lanes, skates, helmet, and gloves are required at all times, but gear is encouraged as players will assume their own risk.

No, at its core synthetic ice is simply a plastic material that hockey skates are able to cut into the same as real ice. You will find that your edges will wear down slightly quicker than real ice; however, synthetic ice has no affect on the performance of your skates or steel.

We recommend sharpening your skates as soon as you start to feel enough slip on your edges. While synthetic ice does wear skate blades down slightly faster than real ice, skate sharpening is still a personal preference and varies based on player skill level and type of use.

We offer full skate sharpening at The Mill and are happy to sharpen your skates before you get on the ice. More information here.
