Boot Fitting (walk-ins are first-come first-serve based on staff availability; appointment only for high level skaters)
There is a non-refundable fitting fee deposit of $35 on our figure skating boots and hockey skates on the day of your fitting appointment. The fitting fee deposit will be deducted from your final purchase price. Higher-level skaters must book an appointment for a fitting with Marlon or John a week in advance.

Skate Sharpening (drop off service, pick-up is on a different date)
We provide skate sharpening for hockey and figure skates. It is a minimum of 24 hours service. You do not need an appointment to drop-off your skates for skate sharpening.​ This service requires pre-payment and a later pick-up date from the drop-off date. We do not do walk-in skate sharpening unless you have an appointment. Appointment requests must be made a week in advance.

Blade Mounting (appointment only)
We provide blade and wheel frame mounting services, and rivet and screw replacements for figure, hockey and inline skates. This service requires an appointment during our available skate hours.

Boot Reconditioning (appointment only)
Stretching boots or boots punched, remounting, plugging and waterproofing services are also available. This service requires an appointment, may require two days before pick-up, and may require you to return during available skate hours.


For all services, skates must be dropped off and paid for in the Pro Shop during Pro Shop hours only and must be picked up at a later date from the drop off date. Please call ahead to confirm that your skate is ready for pick-up.
