Class Recommendations

Arrival time for class:
Students should arrive at least 15 minutes before class to get their skates on and prepare for class.

What to wear on the ice:
Students are encouraged to try to wear full hockey equipment on the ice.  We understand that this is not always an option, but we do ask that you wear the hockey jersey you are provided over your sweater or jacket if you are unable to wear full equipment.

**NOTE: Florida Hospital Center Ice DOES NOT provide or rent helmets, jackets, gloves, or socks.**

Where to go when you get to Florida Hospital Center Ice:
If you have already registered for class, go straight to ‘skate rental,’ get your skates, and put them on- you do not have to check in at the front desk. Once you have your skates on, go to the designated rink to get your lane assignments.
