Check out some of our FAQ's answered by the director.
1. How do I receive the $50 equipment credit at Skaters North Source for Sports?
When you registered your child, the name you used was entered into the Beginners database at the store and when you give your name you will receive a $50* credit towards your purchase at Skaters North Source for Sports, 1321 Fisher St. North Bay.*($50 Credit has no cash value)
2. Is there a dressing room for the kids?
Yes, kids can use the change rooms at Pete Palangio or they can also get dressed in the lobby upstairs. You are NOT required to arrive fully dressed this season, however, as a parent who has been through it with 3 kids, I highly recommend dressing at home whenever possible.
3. What is included in the Uniform?
The uniform includes a Tim-Bits jersey and socks.
4. What equipment do I need to go on the ice?
I’ve attached a PDF checklist of recommended equipment. Please feel free to come to Skaters North Source for Sports, 1321 Fisher St with any questions or concerns around equipment and fitting. My staff are ready to help answer all your questions and regardless of where you may have purchased your gear, we want to ensure your child is fit properly and safe on the ice. We do not charge for our advice and want you to feel comfortable asking us anything you may be unsure of. We will also set up an equipment table Wednesday to showcase equipment that we sell in store. (We will NOT be selling at the arena but all product will be available at the store)
5. Do I need to sharpen my child’s skates?
Please note that most new skates do NOT come sharpened in the box, and skating on dull or unsharpened skates will make it very difficult for your child to learn. I have included a FREE SKATE SHARPENING coupon for you to use on your child’s skates to help them have the best experience possible. If you"re not sure, get them sharpened to start the year.
6. Can I help out on the ice with my son or daughter?
Yes, you can, and we are looking for parent volunteers to help out the instructors on the ice. If you are interested, the only requirements are that you wear a helmet and skates and can stand up on the ice yourself. Please do not worry if you are not able to help out on the ice, we will have lots of volunteers and instructors to assist your child.
