Skating School FREE Practice Sessions—open to current students  

Students and parents are reminded that skating is a skill that requires practice in order to advance to the next level. Students should plan to practice in addition to their weekly lesson. We offer several FREE practice sessions for our students in the Skating School. We also offer several Let’s Skate Public Sessions throughout the week at a reasonable price. In addition, students may choose to augment their lesson with a freestyle session. New this season, we have added several half hour weekday freestyle sessions for students Beta and below who are working with a private instructor. For our more advanced skaters, freestyle ice is available six days a week. Please see our Freestyle Supervisor or front counter staff for a schedule of available times.

As a guide, students should practice weekly in addition to their lesson on the following scale:

  • Tots, Beginners, Pre-Alpha 1 to 1-1/2 hours
  • Alpha/Beta/Gamma/Delta 1-1/2 to 2 hours
  • Freestyle 1-4 2 to 3-1/2 hours
  • Freestyle 5 and above 3-1/2 to 6 hours

Free practice sessions are available to all students who register for Skating School. Schedule changes without notice.
