Come Try

The Langley Blades have a new Come Try program! The first sessions of the season have finished. We currently have a waitlist and when there is enough interest we will look at holding another 3 session stream.

Email langleyblades@gmail.com if you have an interest in trying speed skating.





Speed skates will be provided to the participant on a first-come, first-served basis and an appointment will need to be made for fittings as we are limited to how many people are allowed in the equipment locker. Or, if you prefer, you may do your sessions wearing your own hockey/figure skates.

If possible, the participant is should bring the following equipment:

  • Helmet, full shield or accompanied by safety glasses
  • Throat guard with bib (like what hockey players wear) 
  • Cut-proof gloves: acceptable types of gloves include hockey gloves or leather baseball-type gloves.  Mittens are not acceptable.
  • Shin-guards (soccer type)
  • Knee pads (soft volleyball type)

The club does have limited quantities and sizes of used equipment to borrow on a first-come, first-served basis.  If you have difficulty locating any of the above mandatory pieces of equipment, please let the Come Try contact or equipment manager know and we will try our best to accomodate.

Please wear body fitting workout-type clothes - if need be, please layer for warmth rather than wearing bulky snow-type wear.  Bulky clothes hamper the skater's speed and movement.     

STAY HOME if you feel unwell.
