Skate sharpening is something we take very seriously here at General Sports.  Each of our skate sharpeners is a skater themselves and have experienced a poor sharpening at some point in their career.  It is this experience that fuels our desire to become the most consistent and reliable sharpening outfit that our customers have ever experienced. 


Not only do we use all of the latest and most sophisticated skate sharpening tools, but we meticulously refurbish or replace them as soon as they become even slightly miscalibrated.  Although this leads to higher costs associated with each sharpening, we feel it is neccessary in order to provide a precise and balanced edge. 


General Sports offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all skate sharpenings.  We also offer private and group skate sharpening lessons with optional on-ice demonstrations. Additionally we sell refurbished sharpening equipment.  Email to inquire.



General Sports has the equipment and know-how to fix almost anything that goes wrong with your skates and hockey gear.  Broken tendon guard? Toe cap falling off?  Want to replace your skate tongues?  We can fix that.  Do you have a pair of shoulder pads that needs some extra velcro or another strap sewn on?  We can fix that.  Need a glove palm patched?  We can fix that.  To be honest, there isn't much we CAN'T fix at General Sports.  We also understand that many of these repairs are urgent, so we offer same-day or even while-you-wait repair services.  Every repair is different, so call, email, or bring in your equipment and have one of our employees quote you a price and timeframe.
