Summer 2020 - Introductory - Learn to Skate
Our Learn to Skate program is a 30 minute non-parented class for children ages 2-5 who have not had any time on skates. It is designed to introduce children to the ice and help them become comfortable on skates. This program teaches children the basics of how to get up when they fall down, how to move forward, basic backward movement and how to stop. Music, toys and games are used to help children feel ready to take the next step.
