Learn Skating

This program is intended for non-skaters or for those with limited skill. Skaters will practice skating forward and backwards, developing confidence and control including stops and turns. Participants must provide their own skates (figure or hockey) and recommend sharpening the blades prior to the first class. Safety pads and a hockey helmet would be an asset to beginners. Participants are expected to practice between sessions.
