Learn To Skate - Register Online

Our Learn to Skate Program is open to all girls and boys ages 3 and up. Adult classes are also available. Classes are held on Fridays and Saturdays. Toddler classes are available Wednesday and Thursday. Our Learn to Skate Program includes a 25 minute private group lesson along with a 30 minute supervised practice time. We have special group lessons to accommodate beginners.

Each session runs for 8 weeks. Teachers are always available after class to speak to you regarding your child's progress.

All members of our Learn to Skate program must register with USFSA prior to registration. Below is the link to register.

Our programs conform with the United Figure Skating Association (U.S.F.S.A.) "Basic Skills Program." Programs are tailored to serve the needs of both the recreational and the competitive skater (for both hockey and figure skating). All registered members will receive an official Basic Skills Membership Card, Record Book with stickers, official Basic Skills member patch, and a U.S.F.S.A. Certificate for each level passed.

Bring hats and mittens, and helmets. We recommend that you dress in layers but not in snowsuits as these restrict mobility and can be slippery when they make contact with the ice. Whatever your age, come join us for an hour of fun. You will meet some great people, get some healthy exercise, and learn how to improve your skating skills no matter what your ability level.
