Our LEARN TO SKATE program is for children ages 3 and up by June 30th 2017, who can follow simple instructions.

LEARN TO SKATE lessons are taught on both hockey and figure skates and build a great foundation for future skating.

Lessons are available for at least half an hour twice a week on Saturdays & Sundays for your convenience. Attendance is not recorded and the child can learn at their own pace.

Our coaching staff is led by a long term coach who has had great success in the past teaching our LEARN TO SKATE program, and she is assisted by many of our older accomplished skaters adding to a greater coach to skater ratio.

Parents wearing skates and helmets, who can skate themselves, are welcome to assist their child on ice if needed.

 

So come on out and join in the fun!

Lessons start mid-October!
