"In general, anyone who lacks good control/balance when skating forward, backward and has difficulty stopping, as well as maneuvering around obstacles on the ice must wear a CSA approved hockey helmet."
I would not put my son in jeopardy. He skates very well and has great control. He wears a helmet when playing hockey but not at public skates and not for a news story. There is no mandatory use of helmets in America (at least in our rink). Should toddlers wear helmets and time they are walking on concrete because that is as hard as ice and most toddlers fall more often than my son skating?
An 11 or 12 year old's head has a lot farther to fall. My son is fine and will be fine. Relax everyone.
