Learn to Skate Fall 2016

Session I of Skate Lessons begin Monday 9-17-18…Its not too late to sign up!!
CLASS DESCRIPTION
Tots: Ages 3 to 6. Skaters will learn basic skating skills through games and activities on the ice.
Pre-Alpha thru Delta: Ages 6 to adult. Skaters are divided by age and/or ability.
Competition/Production team: Open to skaters of ANY age and ANY level. Skaters will spend part of the time learning a production number for exhibitions and for a competition in February. We will also introduce skaters to competition events they might want to consider as individuals, duets or small groups. Additional fees and a mandatory meeting are required.
Adult Exercise on Ice: Class will cover skating skills based on the level of participants, and combine them to music for a fun, aerobic, strength-building activity.
Classes are held once a week.  All skaters are encouraged to stay and practice after their lesson.  Plan to arrive 15-20 minutes before your scheduled lesson time to provide adequate time to put on skates and be ready to start your lesson on time.
