Summer 2022 Ice Skating

NOTES:

  • Classes may be combined or cancelled at the discretion of management depending on enrollment.
  • Make-Up Policy: One make-up class is allowed per session per skater. No make-ups are allowed during the first week of classes or the week of evaluations.
  • Class Evaluations: We offer evaluations before the end of each session. Instructors will determine whether a student is ready for evaluation one week prior to testing. Evaluations are optional. Skaters ready to test will be notified by their class instructor or the Figure Skating Supervisor.
  • Skating Class Attire/Equipment: Skaters should wear comfortable pants, a warm jacket or shirt and gloves or mittens. A thick, warm hat or a well-fitted helmet is recommended; a helmet is not required for skaters in figure skating classes. Figure skates are recommended for non-hockey classes, particularly in Snowplow Sam and Basic 1&2.
  • Skate Rental: Skates are available for rent onsite at the Ice Rinks, for a discounted rate of $3.75 per class, or $25 for a coupon book that can be purchased at the Ice Rinks front office. Coupons are for class use only.
