Learn to Skate | Ages 3-12

The Kids Learn to Skate Program is designed for children with skating ability ranging from no experience to beginner skaters. This program offers group lessons, and children will be grouped based on skating level to facilitate instruction. Through fun games and activities, qualified instructors will encourage your child to skate and build your child's confidence. We recommend that participants practice between classes. Safety pads and hockey helmet are mandatory. Attendance at the first lesson is very important.
