Our good friend Brian Miller, head trainer for the Peterborough Petes Major Junior "A" Hockey Club, has designed an alternative to lacing up skates using Velcro straps. He calls his idea/invention Option B.
Our sons Matthew and Nathan are both using the Option B Velcro straps and heartily endorse them:
“The Option B straps are easy to do up and you can take off your skates easier. They tighten your skates just as well as laces. If you want an easier solution to tightening skates, I recommend Option B straps.”
Matthew Fisher, Kawartha Komets player, a Special Needs Hockey Program
“The Option B straps are awesome! They are great! They help me to be more independent. I encourage parents to invest in these for their kids to help them to be more independent.”
Nathan Fisher, Kawartha Komets player, a Special Needs Hockey Program
These straps are available through Nash Sports for $24.99 plus tax and shipping. You can contact them through the Option B web site.
CONGRATULATIONS, Brian, on a great idea!
