Junior Ice Hockey Skates
Start early with the right equipment
People say that it is never too early or too late to start training in sports. While it may be true in some cases, hockey may not be one of them. Nevertheless, you still have to start preparing your child early, if you want him to be both a skillful hockey player and ready for the game physically and mentally.
There is not a set age limit after which a child is believed to be ready to play hockey. It is more or less dependent on the individual physical and mental development. The unofficial time when you should first think about real hockey equipment for a child is around age 4. Hockey is a sport where you have to be able to stand on both of your feet and react to your surroundings. Before around age 4 children may not be ready to face such violent conditions. At this age they are ready to learn the first steps of handling a hockey stick, learning how to be a part of the team, how to be careful.
Nevertheless, there are quite a few things a parent can try to do before introducing a child to an actual hockey field. Most important – introduce them to ice skating. Children can start skating as soon as they learn to walk, so ice skates for toddlers is one the first things a hockey parent would need.
Choose from the best
We have built a sizable inventory of different kids ice skates for all ages. It can be difficult to choose – what kind of skates does my child need and if my choice will be two small. We have divided our selection in three main groups – intermediate, junior and youth. Furthermore, you can narrow the search for only the size you need.
When it comes to ice skates, width matters as much as size. For different player positions and different types of comfort in general, you can filter our kids ice skate products by width as well. If these will be the first ice skates for your child and he or she is still learning, don’t worry if you buy something too big. Your kid will already have grown into the ice skates by the time he can hold a stick and shoot a puck.
How much do they cost
Generally ice skates for kids are not too expensive. There are products that cost as little as 40 EUR, but most examples vary between 150 EUR and 400 EUR. When buying ice skates for a kid, consider that he will outgrow then rather fast. This is why it is a smart move to first buy cheaper skates for when your child just starts to learn and then buy more professional ice skates, when he is already involved in the hockey game.
We have a wide variety of products from the best equipment manufacturers in our store – like CCM and Bauer. Feel free to explore this section for all of your children's ice skate needs – skates, accessories and other equipment!
