Learn to Skate Information



The Eccles Ice Center Learn to Skate program is supported by the Marriner S. Eccles foundation.  The program is taught year-round and welcomes all skill levels and ages.  Our program aims to foster a love of sport for each skater through either figure or hockey skating.  


Instructional Information


Lessons consist of a half-hour lesson with a trained coach once a week.  These lessons are either on Tuesday or Thursday.   


The class length is eight weeks (unless otherwise specified in the registration) which helps skaters build solid fundamentals and sustainable skating skills.  


This is a progressive style of program.  We no longer have an end-of-session test.  Instead, skaters will pass off skills throughout their eight weeks in classes. That way, students who advance faster will be able to move into the next set of skills and not be held back.

New Enrollee Information


If you are new or are registering someone new to the Learn to Skate program, you will need to register as a New Enrollee.


Although you or the individual you are signing up may have had previous skating lessons, we ask that you sign up as a new enrollee, and the instructors, on the first day of class, will reassign you to a higher level if they see fit.


Please refer below when signing up as a New Enrollee
