    I’ve took advantage of this program a few times. I was able to save between 50$ to 60$ on the price of a new pair. Unfortunetaly, my son now wears a size 7 1/2 in men… SIGH!

    Anyone know what size juniors start in?

    We saved our receipt from last year and saved $75 off skates for this season. This is a great program and we will keep using it. When it comes to hockey, gotta save where one can.

    I’m actually looking for a used snowboard (146-150) for my son, so if anyone’s thinking of doing this trade in please consider contacting me for the same deal. Contact: jay_marm at yahoo dot com.

    BTW, the deal description above is a bit misleading, you don’t get 50% off your new purchase… you get 50% back from your old receipt.

    Hi –

    If I’m not mistaken, Junior stops at size 6 (maybe 6 1/2). Sports are expensive, where ever you can save…you do…

    I know this is an older post, but as I just bought skates yesterday I just want to say–check the fine print.

    My son received his skates last year for his birthday. The skate buyer specifically asked if the trade in had to be at that store, or if it would be ok at any Sport Chek. He was specifically told any store.

    We went to our local store, only to be told that the program only works at the store you originally bought the skates in. They weren’t going to exchange the skates until I said “I’m sorry to waste your time, but if those are the rules, looks like we will be purchasing at the originating store” (2 hours away). Needless to say, as we were leaving someone stopped us and said “we’ll let it go this time, but don’t do it again”.

  7. Excellent blog! I genuinely love how it’s easy on my eyes as well as the information are well written. I am wondering how I might be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which need to do the trick! Have a nice day!

    Youth ends in size 13.5. Junior starts at size 1. Not sure what size it goes up to before you’re in adult sizes?

    What if you can’t find your receipt? we still have the boxes, but the receipt is missing 🙁

    Curious why the skate exchange only applies to hockey skates and not figure skates for girls. My daughters feet grow pretty quickly and being 6 years old I would definitely buy her skates from sports chek if they offered if for girls skates as well. If it has something to do with saving hockey players money they should consider that figure skating is expensive too and kids feet grow very fast for both sexes. When I was told about this program I went right over to the store to purchase my daughters skates, but when I was advised it was “hockey savings” only kind of deal it really rubbed me the wrong way. Why discriminate by sports when used figure skates would sell pretty quickly if they were offered. I’m very disappointed that even junior/youth girls get the shaft. Hockey shaft in this case. It not like females don’t pay more for most everything else, was hoping that it would’t apply at youth/junior levels too. Change your policy sports check to encourage girls in sports too!

      These are funded programs. Take this up with the canadian figure skating association. Lots of girls play hockey too. Hockey at the Atom level costs MINIMUM 1000$ per year. If you are buying figure skates at sport check I think I can safely assume that your daughter isn’t in the kind of programs that demand exorbitant amounts of funds like hockey. Competitive figure skates start close to a grand, and aren’t purchased at sport check. Sport check doesn’t sell figure skates over 200$, and has pairs as low as 33$. Sport check sels 1100$ hockey skates. Hockey registration costs 650$- 5000$. Then you need to pay the cash call for icetime and refs. Then you need to buy Skates, helmet, stick, gloves, mouth guard, pants, shoulder pads, elbow pads, shin pads, neck guard, hockey socks, base layer, jock/jill. Hockey is prohibitively expensive.
