Learn to Skate  – (Ages 4 – 10) This class is appropriate for budding skaters of all kinds including eager hockey players who want to hone their skating skills or striving figure skaters.  First-time beginners and novice skaters with elementary skills will both benefit from honing basic skating techniques. Students can use either hockey or figure skates.

Intermediate Skating (Ages 6 – 12) is for kids who already have fundamental skating skills and want to begin narrowing their focus on figure skating technique in particular. Intermediate students will strengthen their basic skills, like power strokes, and cover first jumps and first spins. Figure skates only.
