No, they do not to be sharpened. They're not really skates. The kids just use them to get used to standing on the ice, and to walk in them on the ice.

Sharpen hockey skates out of the box?

Skates right out of the box are not sharpened. Most likely the shop that you are purchasing them from will sharpen the skates before you leave the store. If you purchased the skates online you will need to take then to your local shop and have them sharpened. But make sure that the skates fit properly and you are not going to ship them back. Once you sharpen the skates most online retailers consider the skates now used and will not accept them for return. If you need to get them sharpened, don't worry it generally costs only a few dollars ($3-5). You will also need to maintain the skates and have them sharpened after every few skates. This is a personal preference when to sharpen your skates.

Do you sharpen new ice skates?

If you already sharpened them when you bought them, then there is no need to sharpen them again. If you didn't, you might want to try skating with it first before considering if you want the sharpened or not. It's all about how the person skates. Of course, you might want to sharpen them a day or two before the competition. This way it gives you time to get used to it, but doesn't let the skates become dull again before the competition time comes.

What stuff do you need for ice skating?

If you're going there with your own skates; Ice Skates (to skate in), Towels/Tissues (to clean your skates afterwards), Skate Guards (to protect your skate's blades) and perhaps thick socks if necessary. If you're going without your own skates, you'll need to bring warm clothing anyway (eg; gloves, jumper, jacket etc). Skates will be provided at the ice rink for you to use, so don't worry about needing to buy a pair if you don't have any already (as they are very expensive and you might want to give skating a go before you buy some skates).

In ice skating how do you know when your skates blades need sharpening?

The best indicator of when they need to be sharpened is experience. If you are a decent skater and you keep falling because your skates are slipping out from underneath you, they need to be sharpened. You can also examine the blade... hold the skate up under any decent light source and slowly rock it back and forth. If there are lots of shiny spots (shinier than the rest of the steel) they likely need it. As well if you look very closely and can see burrs or nicks along the edge of the steel, this is also a good indication. Lastly, (and I don't recommend this if you don't know what you are doing) very lightly put your thumb on one side of the blade, and your index finger on the other (the blade, not the edge) and slowly, carefully run them towards the back of the skate. If you can feel little pieces of steel sticking out or its not very smooth... you need a sharpen
