Instructional Details

Lesson Structure:

  • Duration: 8 weeks (unless otherwise noted during registration)

  • Frequency: Once weekly, half-hour sessions

  • Days: Either Tuesday or Thursday

Progressive Learning Approach:

We've shifted to a more fluid learning model, allowing skaters to advance at their own pace.  Skills are assessed continuously over the eight weeks, enabling quicker progression to more advanced skills without waiting for the session-end test.

Note: It will be under the coach's discretion if a student should move up later in the session.  

Class Schedules


Tuesday & Thursday Session Times:

Note: Each class is 30 minutes.  For specific start times, please refer to the detailed schedule below.

New Enrollee Guide


Getting Started:

First-time participants should register as New Enrollees.  We recommend starting at level 1, regardless of previous experience.  On the first day, our instructors will evaluate your skills and, if appropriate, place you in a more advanced class.

Note: if you are moved up from level 1 to a higher level, class times will change to the earlier schedule.  Please keep that in mind during registration.

New Enrollee Class Registration Age Guide:

  • Snowplow Sam 1: Ages 3 to 5

  • Basic 1: Ages 6 to 18

  • Hockey 1: Ages 6 to 18 and older

  • Adult 1: Ages 18 and older

Special Note for Young Hockey Enthusiasts:

Children aged 3 - 5 interested in hockey should complete all Snowplow Sam classes before enrolling in Hockey 1.

Learn to Skate Practice Punch Pass

Practice Opportunities:

Participants in our Learn to Skate program will receive a Practice Punch Pass, good for 8 punches. This pass allows additional practices during the rink's public skating times.  Utilize this opportunity to sharpen your skills and apply the techniques learned in class.  Remember, the pass is specifically for 8 public skating sessions and does not apply to other rink programs such as Freestyles, Stick n Shoots, or Hot Chocolate Club.


Note:  The pass is valid only during public skating times and excludes other rink programs.  Also, public skate times vary during our winter season and are often crowded.

For any questions or further information, please reach out to the Skating School Administrator. We're excited to see you on the ice.
