The Northfield Skating School is organizing a December skate drive to help expand Northfield's limited rental skate supply and meet its mission of increasing the community's access to ice activities. Figure and hockey skates of all sizes are welcome. The drive will continue through the month of December.  There are five drop box locations around Northfield.  To see the list, continue reading.

The Northfield Skating School teaches skaters of all ages with a full range of skating goals with the mission "Building Skills and Confidence for Skating and for Life." This includes aspiring hockey players, recreational skaters, competitive figure skaters, adults, families, and everyone in between.
