SHort Track Speedskating 101 – Packing Your Bag

Ever Wonder what to pack for practice and what goes into those massive bags you see coach carry around? Check out the first video for our Short Track Speedskating 101 on our Youtube channel.

Note Mary may have mentioned “cut proof” which is a common term for “cut resistant” however no material is entirely cut proof and may in particular situations be cut through.
