Program Description: Our Learn to Skate program is an ideal way to introduce children to ice skating. This program will consist of 3 separate on-ice sessions with the primary focus being that of developing an interest in on-ice activities with the possible future migration into an organized ice hockey program. This program is for new skaters only and most of the time will be spent developing skating through fun and games.

The program has three different options you can choose from. You can select Learn to Skate with NO Equipment, Learn to Skate with FULL Equipment, or Learn to Skate with Skates, Gloves, & a Helmet.

Please ensure your child has a BNQ Certified neck laceration protector for all three sessions.
