When planning a Public Skating outing, plan to arrive a few minutes early to avoid a possible wait in line. Participants are expected to obey posted rules and skate guards at all times. Access to the building is limited to matted or carpeted areas while wearing skates.
For more information about public skating, please contact the Newlove Pro Shop at 419.372.2264
Skates are available to rent in all sizes by exchanging shoes. Skates should always fit snug. A properly tied skate should be laced up all the way to the top hooks and tight around the ankles.
- Toddler's Skates: Should go up one size
- Children's Skates: Generally run true to size
- Adult's Skates: Should request skates one size smaller than street shoes.
