An 8-week series of skating classes include the following:

  • One half-hour lesson per week
  • Public Session admission on the day of your class
  • Skate rental on the day of your class
  • Five additional public skating passes (valid only during 8-week session)
  • Practice recommendation on the 5th class
  • Progress report on the 7th class
  • Certificate of Completion on the 8th class
  • Bring a Guest class on the 8th class
  • We recommend dressing in layers including pants that allow for movement.
  • BRING GLOVES or mittens - ski / waterproof gloves are recommended for extra protection
  • Wear thin socks that come above the ankle so skates can fit snug
  • Helmets are VERY STRONGLY recommended.  A snow cap rolled up in the back can also provide extra padding.
  • Snow pants are great for tots their first days to stay dry as they are finding their balance.

Skates should fit very snug. If skates are too big it will be very difficult to balance.

All skaters should start in figure skates as it is much easier to balance on the longer, flatter blades. When it is time to transition to hockey skates, we recommend doing so during practice to adjust before the next lesson.
