Learn to Skate

Learn-to-Skate

Learn to Skate is an introduction to skating.  Ages 4-12 (other ages need coordinator approval).  No experienced needed.  Sessions are structured as a group activity where children can explore skating.  Coaches will be on the ice to assist the children, demonstrate skills, and offer encouragement.  Individual lessons are NOT provided, and this is not one on one instruction.

Please note:  Only certified coaches and volunteers, and junior coaches are allowed to be on the ice with the participants during these sessions. 

 

 

 

-->Registration is closed.

NEXT SESSION:  NOVEMBER 2021

Please have your child dress warm for their lessons.  Snow pants, winter coats, mitten or gloves and have them wear long socks so the skates do not rub on their skin causing blisters.
