Sharpen Those Skates!

Share:

With many arenas in Manitoba well underway with full ice schedules, it’s time to get those skates sharpened—and many local companies and groups are available to help you out. 

Île-des-Chênes has a new skate shop in their arena, the Dakota Skate Care Centre, which recently moved from the Dakota Community Club in Winnipeg. They have everything skaters might need from skate-sharpening services to mouth guards, tape, laces, blades and rivet replacements, and bar names. They also handle stick repairs. They are open from Monday through Friday, 4:00–10:00 p.m. and on Saturday and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. 

Niverville also has many individuals who sharpen skates, and they’re just a quick text or phone call away. Heinz Neufeld can be contacted at 204-782-4089 and you can reach Pat Davies at 204-326-0772. The Niverville Arena also offers skate-sharpening on Mondays from 7:30–9:00 p.m. and at all tournaments.

The Ste. Agathe Arena is currently fixing its skate sharpening machine.
