    I know this is a silly question but do I need to bring skates for this clinic if this is my first time? Will I still benefit from the clinic without skates? I want to wait and ask for advice from experts (like the folks here) before I commit to a purchase.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
