What type of skates should I buy?
Outfit - Competitions are your time to shine and to wear your special ice skating dress or outfit. It is best to choose an outfit that is flattering to your body type, age appropriate and compliments your music choice. Keep in mind that outfits with long sleeves will be warmer and also allow the judges to see your arm movements better.
Hair - Most skaters choose to wear their hair up in a bun or in a ponytail. There is no set rule on hairstyles but whichever style you choose... neatness is key. It is suggested that your hairstyle be simple and elegant so that you do not distract the judges eye from your skating.
Tights - Keep a separate pair(s) of skating tights just for competitions. The style can be footed, over-the-boot or ankle length. Main importance is that there are no holes in the tights. Judges want a clean non-distracting line to your skate.
