Age Groups
My child is 8 and in the 3-8 year old age group.  I’m worried they won’t have enough competition skating against 3-4 year olds.
This won’t be an issue due to the way Gigi structures the on-ice sessions.  After powerskating, she splits the kids into 6 groups for skill work and small-area competitive games.  Each group is based on skill level. Therefore, your 8 year old child will only be competing with kids at the same skill level.  Typically, a 3-4 year old never competes against the 7-8 year olds…unless they’re the next Kendall Coyne or Connor McDavid. 🙂  

My child is turning 9 (or 12) after camp.  Can he/she participate in the 9-11 (or 12-14) age group?
The cut-off date is July 26, 2020.  If your child will be 9 by then, he/she may participate in the 9-11 age group.  If your child is turning 12 by then, he/she may participate in the 12-14 age group.

No.  Kids will need to bring their own equipment.
