Learn to Skate

FALL 2022 LEARN TO SKATE IS FULL. PLEASE CHECK BACK IN DECEMBER WHEN OUR JAN/FEB SESSION #2 REGISTRATION OPENS!

Learn to Skate

Learn to Skate is an introduction to skating.  Ages 4-10 (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. 

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.
