Rules to play Speed Skating
Short Track All short track skaters must have speed skates, a spandex skin suit that is kevlar and cut proof, protective helmet, protective eyewear with strap,hard shin pads, specific skating gloves, knee pads (in suit), neck guard (bib style) and ankle protection. Optional equipment is a kevlar suit to protect against being cut from another skaters blade.
Long Track For long track skaters the same equipment should be worn as short track racers but with the exception of a helmet, shin pads, knee pads, and neck guard which are not required. The suit also does not need to be kevlar. Most long track skaters also wear a hood that is built into the suit.
