What kind of skates do you offer?

Hockey Skates

Hockey Skates

Hockey Skates are the most common type of rental at the Olympic Oval. Our skates have unmatched durability, well-maintained edges and have lasting comfort. We have over 500 pairs of skates available to rent.

Short Track Skates

Speed Skates

Would you like to try something a little different? Speed skates are a fun alternative to hockey skates and require getting-used-to but can be quite enjoyable on the ice.


Skate Sizes

Available sizes range from children's 8 to adult 12. Skates are rented on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that a piece of ID is required when renting equipment. Skates and helmets must be returned after each use, and your ID is then returned to you.

I don't have my own pair of skates — but the Skate Shop has every size imaginable — so it is super easy to arrive, grab a pair of skates and go for a skate!
