LEARN TO SKATE - COACHES

Jackson Ultima Logo

We recognize the valuable contributions made by coaches giving so much time, energy and passion to the next generation of on & off ice champions.

Thank you for the feedback on our products, which directly impacts the research and development of all of our Jackson Ultima skates, boots, and blades. Your comments also helped develop Jackson’s fit guide, making it easier for skaters and parents to know the appropriate range of skates for their skill and needs.

Here are 3 important suggestions to help with the equipment side of coaching:

  • Partner with a skate tech to be your specialist for skate sizing and sharpening
  • Send parents a link or image of exactly the skate you are recommending. If you have questions regarding the best skate/boot/blade for your skater, feel free to contact yourJU Skate Tech or Jackson Customer Service.  Consider adding JacksonUltima.com to your favorites
  • Avoid over-sizing whenever possible for best skill development, especially at the intermediate and elite levels

Below is an overview of the Jackson Ultima lineup and at what level skaters can expect to be graduating throughout.
