LEARN TO SKATE
Registration now open for Winter 2020!
November 17 Update:
With Governor Reynolds new proclamation from November 16 through December 10, all youth sports and recreational gathering are prohibited of any size which directly impacts our Learn to Skate and Learn to Play programs. We will be suspending both programs until further notice and as we work to provide an update on the future programming as soon as possible. Our goal is to restart the program where it has been paused once restrictions for youth sports and recreational gatherings are lifted. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us, and we will follow up with additional information as it is available. We appreciate everyone’s understanding as we work through these difficult times together.
Classes are offered year round for ages 3 to adult.
For our youngest skaters, we offer Snowplow Sam classes. Skaters 3 to 5 years old learn in Snowplow Sam classes specially designed to teach the basics of skating through games, songs, and other fun activities.
The basic skills levels are for skaters 6 years and up, starting with Basic 1 and continuing through Basic 6. Such skills as basic stroking, backward skating, stops, forward and backward crossovers, stops, and turns are taught. After learning the basics, skaters progress to our Pre-Freestyle and Freestyle levels to begin learning jumps and spins. Classes for beginning adults are also offered.
Gift certificates are available for Learn to Skate sessions at the rink.
