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. Learn to Skate sessions are eight weeks long (4 weeks during our mini session) with achievement testing on the last day of class. The 2023-2024 annual membership with Ice Sports Industry (ISI) is included with registration. Skaters 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 during registration. 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 15 minutes of supervised practice time immediately following their next lesson.

Rental skates are not included with Learn to Skate classes. Skate rental punch cards with eight rentals may be purchased at the Ice Den service desk for $28 plus tax.
