These unparented classes will provide basic skating instruction in a group format. Classes are designed to teach and help skaters master the basic fundamentals of skating including; stopping, gliding, backwards skating, turning as well as the proper technique for falling down and getting up. Our qualified Instructors will use a variety of games and teaching tools to make this a fun, safe and educational experience for participants! Mandatory equipment includes: helmet (one that covers the front and back of the head), skates, gloves/mittens and snow pants or pants that are waterproof. Parents are not permitted on the ice unless requested by the instructor.
