Guidelines for operating and maintaining the SKATE HELPER
We recommend that the Skate Helpers be used under supervision of ice rink staff
at all times.
Many rinks use the skating aids during supervised parent-and-tot skates and do not
allow them out during public skates. The Skate Helpers need to be monitored at all
The Skate Helper is ideally suited for children ages 3 to 9 years of age. It is 29 inches
high and weighs 17lbs. An adult can use two stacked together.
The Skate Helper is meant to be an aid giving children stability on the ice. It is not
meant to be used to teach children how to skate.
The Skate Helper should be held on the sides where the handles are. Do not allow
children to push the Skate Helper from the top middle as this may cause it to tip.
- Maintenance and Warranty of the Skate Helper:
Motion Sports advises arenas to stack and store the Skate Helpers when not in use.
For cleaning, use soap and water (sometimes a soft scrub with bleach on black marks is
required). The color is in the material, so it won’t come off.
Motion Sports guarantees the Skate Helper against manufacturing defects for 2 years
from the date of purchase. The Skate Helpers should last 8 – 10 years before the
colors begin to fade and show wear and tear from being used.
When we originally designed the Skate Helper in early 2007 we approached the CSA
for approval and were told at the time that there was no safety test available. We
believe the Skate Helper is the safest skating aid available. A plastic Skate Helper is
safer than a metal bar. The plastic used in production is the same plastic used to make
Over 350 ice arenas in Canada, the US and around the world are choosing the Skate
Helper over any other skating aid. It is safe, fun, affordable and durable.
