SKATE SCHOOL FOR TOTS AND YOUTH


Skate School is a learn-to-skate program that introduces youth and tots ages under 14 to the basic skills of ice skating.

After starting out with the skating basics, the program encourages development by taking children through a series of basic skills levels, preparing them to go into ice hockey, figure skating, speed skating, or recreational skating.

The first step is to enrol in a CORE CLASS see bellow.  SUPPLIMENTARY CLASSES and Private Lessons are also offered within the Adult Learn-to-Skate program for well-rounded skill development.
