Where are the answers to this component of the Belt Loop, BSA? I have been searching forever. Helmets are not usually part of casual skating - what other safety equipment is there? How can you protect yourself while ice skating?
Do I really have to go to the U.S. Winter Sports Federation and research all this? Why can't the BSA list what they expect a Cub Scout to know with respect to these requirements?
