Skate Services

Your skates are your ultimate tool in the rink, and regular skate sharpening is crucial to keep an edge that will perform as you need it to.

Sharpening for Hockey Skates

Maintain your edge with the help of DICK’S Sporting Goods—our Skate PROS will have you ready for the ice in minutes.

Skate PROS use a diamond-tipped dresser to grind an edge on your figure or hockey skates. Concave semi-circles, called the skate hollow, are cut into the blade edge. The deeper the hollow, the sharper your blade will be. A deep hollow produces a sharper feel and better grip (or bite) on the ice, while a shallow hollow delivers more speed (or glide). A Skate PRO can help you determine what might be best for your skill level, style of play and frequency of use.

If you begin to feel yourself sliding uncomfortably on the ice, it’s probably time for a professional sharpening. Many skaters log the number of hours between sharpenings, so they’re always prepared for practice or play. Remember, nicks, abrasions and dullness can impact your speed and control on the ice.

Figure skate sharpening is also available in locations offering Skate Services.

Heat Molding Service

You can also customize the fit of certain hockey skates with heat molding services offered in select stores. Many skates contain a specialized thermoformable foam that softens when heated, creating a fit that’s specific to your foot. Skate PROS at DICK’S will bake your new skates in a specialized oven then fit them to your feet, helping you save hours of break-in time. The skate will be just warm enough to soften the foam while cool enough to slip onto your foot.
