There is something for everyone in our Learn to Skate program. Ice in Paradise has figure skating and hockey classes from beginner to advanced levels for tot skaters (ages three to five), youth skaters (ages six to 13 years), and teen and adult skaters of all ages.  Make-up classes may only be done within the semester enrolled.

Classes are 30 min long and skaters will work to learn a set of skills over the 8 week course.  On week 5 of the classes, skaters will receive a progress report assessing their skills.  Not all skills are expected to be achieved during one 8 week course and if you would like additional help with the skills, please inquire with your group lesson coach about private lessons.

 

This is a fantastic way for kids AND adults to learn how to sharpen their skating skills in a really comfortable and supportive environment.

 

**Ice in Paradise Learn to Skate reserves the right to combine levels if enrollment allows**

COVID PROTOCOLS

  1. If you will require a helmet to skate, please bring your own as we are not providing ANY articles of clothing or equipment due to Covid (aside from skate rentals).

  2. Please be sure to wear a mask properly at ALL times while in the facility. If you fail to do so, you will be asked to leave. 

  3. Please bring a water bottle with you when you come to skate as it is a difficult physical activity and is important to hydrate. There won't be any water fountains available except to refill water bottles. 

  4. Only two parents allowed per skater in the building at this point in time.

  5.  Parents are asked to observe their skaters lesson AWAY from ALL exits and entrances to the rink(s) AND the actual ice surface. This is not only a Covid precaution but also a fire safety issue. There is a fantastic viewing area with bleachers upstairs. 

  6. Skates are ONLY allowed in the immediate lobby and on the ice surface. Skaters are not permitted to enter the parking lot or upstairs with rental skates.
