Learn to Skate

Our goal is to teach the fundamentals of skating using a variety of safe and enjoyable instructional techniques. The Learn to Skate Program strives to develop strong basic skating skills (i.e. forward & backward skating, edges, turns, and more) self-confidence and encourages participation at the recreational level. Learn to Skate provides exercise and enjoyment for the whole family. We want to provide you with a fun, social, and safe environment to learn and grow.

Learn to Skate is for all ages — adults too!

Each class consists of 40 minutes of group instruction followed by a 10 minute open skate where skill practice is encouraged.

Basic Skills

For beginner through mid-level skaters ages 3 through 16, or those under the age of 3 who have completed Ice Explorers Program.

Adults who cannot attend the Saturday Adult Skating Academy class may attend the Basic Skills classes. Helmets are required for skaters under the age of 7. Bike helmets are fine.
