Learn to Skate

Learn to Skate group classes offer a fun and relaxed environment for skaters of all skill levels. Participants meet once a week for a 30-minute class followed by 15 minutes of supervised practice. Sessions are eight weeks long with achievement testing on the last day of class. The 2017-2018 annual membership with Ice Sports Industry (ISI) is included with registration. Skaters may earn achievement badges or certificates and advance through the ISI curriculum. Groups are formed with skaters of similar age and skill level. Please indicate the level for which you are enrolling on your registration form. If necessary, the skater’s skill level will be assessed on the first day of class by Ice Den instructors. Sorry, make up classes are not available. If a class is missed, please remind your instructor and he/she will work with the skater during the fifteen minutes of supervised practice immediately following their next lesson. 

Rental skates are not included during the Learn to Skate class. Skate rental punch cards with eight rentals may be purchased at the Ice Den service desk for $26.25. Price does not include sales tax.

 

All Learn to Skate participants are invited to practice their ice skating skills during weekday and weekend afternoon public skate sessions. Each Learn to Skate participant receives eight free public skate sessions which will be tracked electronically. The free admissions are valid for any regular skate session (not valid on Friday and Saturday nights); skate rental is included. These free public skate sessions will be available beginning the first week of Learn to Skate class and expire on the last day of the session. Skaters also receive 15% off one item in the pro shop. This is valid during the eight weeks of your session.
