All children MUST wear a helmet at all times on the ice. 
Other helpful items... 
-Small, thin gloves. the ice can be very cold and and sting when your child falls. I would suggest the little knit gloves as these cover but do not get in the way of instruction.

-Some children opt to just wear snow pants instead of knee pads. 
Please DO NOT have your child wear shorts or short sleeve shirts during the lessons.
