Skate Smart Program


Grow beyond the rink.

Skate Pairs emphasizes developing the whole individual – nurturing both athlete and the character of each person. We’ve developed a unique “Skate Smart” program to help our athletes attain the knowledge and understand that the achievement of their personal goals goes far beyond our time spent lacing up the skates.

Skate Smart is a monthly educational series that takes place off-ice. The goal of the program is to enrich the athletes mind and provide them with learning opportunities that enhance their mental and physical well-being. The lessons taught in Skate Smart go beyond the ice and are learning opportunities that will extend throughout the rest of the athletes’ lives.

Presenters for Skate Smart come from all over the country and topics include psychology, nutrition, team building, media training, and much more!
