ABOUT LEARN TO SKATE

How We Teach Kids to Skate

Lessons are for kids 4 to 14 years old. Our coaches make sure all beginners learn the proper techniques needed to skate in our Hockey On Your Block or Go Figure programs. All skaters get personalized attention and receive the instruction they need to feel comfortable on the ice. Participants will learn how to:

Fall and get up properly

Stand up without help

Push and glide

Stop

Turn

Backward skate
