Learn To Skate Program

FALL & WINTER 2014 LEARN TO SKATE BROCHURE NOW AVAILABLE

CLICK HERE FOR A PRINTABLE BROCHURE

At Rocket Ice Arena, our goal is to provide a fun and safe environment for skaters of all ages and abilities to learn and grow.  From Pre Tot to Figure Skating classes, lessons are presented in concise levels with each one focusing on several skills that will be built upon in following levels.  After demonstrating mastery of the skills in one level, a student may proceed to the next.  Our curriculum works in conjunction with the United States Figure Skating Basic Skills Program and the International Skating Instiute WeSkate program, both of which are taught in quality rinks worldwide.

General Class Information

Classes meet once a week. Skaters should arrive 15-20 minutes prior to the start time of their class.  Classes will meet in the lobby before going onto the ice.  Skate rental is available for $3.00 per time or you can purchase a 10-use Rental Pass.  Long sleeves and pants, gloves or mittens are recommended. Helmets can be worn if desired.  Double blade skates are not permitted.  In the last few weeks of each session skaters will receive a Progress Report which will help them select the appropriate level to sign up for next.

We do not offer make up classes. Students learn best in their regularly scheduled weekly class. A make up lesson disrupts the flow of a weekly class and affects the progress of the class' regular students. For these reasons we do not allow make ups. 

In order for students to maximize their progress we provide them each with a VIP skater card. This allows the student to skate for free during the weeks of the skate school session at our Rockin’ Skates offered seven days a week. This is a great setting for your child to practice their moves and elements and also to have fun skating to the music.
