Frequently Asked Questions
Are private lessons available?
There are many reasons to hire a private coach for your child. Coaches can help skaters excel at a faster pace than in group lessons, supplement group lessons, provide assistance on a difficult skill, or help when the skater is ready to compete more seriously. If you are interested in private lessons, ask the Skating Director for more details.
Coaches are independent contractors and all financial arrangements are made with them directly. Cost varies based on the rate of the instructor hired.
Can I continue with Learn-To-Skate (LTS) even though I have registered for the Private Lessons?
Yes. Combining LTS with Private Lessons is a great way to increase your learning. Skating takes a lot of dedication and if you want to improve, it takes practice. The learning curve increases rapidly with even being on the ice twice per week. Combining LTS with Private Lessons is a great way to continue to develop.
What should I wear to the on-ice class?
Student skaters should wear layers of comfortable clothing that allow movement & gloves/mittens.
- Light pair of gloves
- Long, thin socks or nylons
- Refrain from wearing any restrictive or bulky clothing
- A helmet is required for skaters through Basic 3, but suggested through Basic 6
