Sharpen Those Skates!


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.
