The secret to speeding up and down the rink with ease? Proper support and fit.

With our in-house skate sharpening system, you can get the smooth glide and responsive bite of a freshly-sharpened blade. We offer both traditional and Blackstone’s Flat Bottom V sharpening systems to give you the customized sharpening tailored to your needs and preferences. And when you buy skates from Five Hole Sports, your first sharpening will be free!
“Skate baking,” or heat-molding skates, has become a popular way to get a superior fit from your hockey skates. When you purchase skates from Five Hole Sports, we will bake your new skates for free! We heat the skates to make them more pliable before you put them on and wear them for several minutes. As your skates cool they will mold to the shape of your feet, which can solve some fit issues and shorten the time it takes to break them in.
Five Hole Sports has three locations: Cary, Wake Forest, and Charlotte, North Carolina. Come into our hockey stores today for hockey skate sharpening and equipment maintenance. Contact Five Hole Sports if you have questions or need more info.
