Learn to Skate

We offer a variety of classes that teach all aspects of skating. Each level progressively introduces skills so they are mastered at your own pace. At the end of each session, skaters are given a written evaluation of skills mastered and a recommended level for advancement. All classes follow ISI standards. 

Class days and times may be adjusted, combined, or canceled due to enrollment levels or facility events.

We now have Open Enrollment. You may sign up for classes at any time.
