Why: Because...IT'S A GREAT DAY TO SKATE!!!
Attend classes regularly to maximize benefits and maintain growth and progress. There are several extra skating opportunities throughout the year to particiapte in, regardless of the level you are in. We offer 2 extraordinary ice shows each year, both in spring and during the Christmas holidays. In addition, we have Halloween and Valentines on Ice exhibitions, both of which are fun for the entire family. We are home to our very own Diamond Edge Figure Skating Club, which helps to sponsor several events throughtout the year including the spring ice show, a spring competition, special skating seminars and Skate for the Cure each September.

How:
Decide which session day is best for your schedule, either Tuesdays 6:00-7:30pm OR Saturdays 9:00-10:30am. Check our calendar (click here) to make sure our Learn to Skate sessions are planned for the date you wish to begin. Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to start time in order to register and get fitted for skates. The first 30 minutes of each group session is taught by one of our amazing professional skating instructors (Click here for instructor information.) After the group session, there will be an area on the ice for up to 1 hour of practice time. Sessions meet once per week for a total of 8 weeks. There are a total of 8 levels of ice skating developed by the United States Figure Skating Association. Skaters will advance to the next level once they accomplish the required skating maneuvers for each level. We do not pressure skaters to advance too quickly; each skater progresses at his or her own pace.

Cost:
Initial Enrollment Fee is $174 plus tax and includes 8 weeks of "Fun-Skate" sessions, a new pair of personal ice skates that are yours to keep, a 1 year membership with the United States Figure Skating Association (required), an 8 week season skating pass to open public sessions and a USFS Learn to Skate Fun Pack. Additional sets of 8 lessons can be purchased after the initial enrollment for $125 plus tax.

Helpful hints:
It can be chilly in the ice arena, especially on the ice surface during fall and winter. A warm hat, gloves, and layers of clothing are suggested but be careful to not wear anything too bulky that might restrict adequate movement and flexibility while skating.
