As others said, helmet should be your friend. And if you don't want to have a very painful skating career get some knee protection aswell, l still remember the first time I fell on ice and both of my knees made contact with it...not only did I cry, but I was so close to never ever setting a foot on icy surface.
Good advice...don't forget elbow pads.

One advantage kids have, aside from being low to the ice, is wearing full gear starting out...it can easily half the time it takes to improve
