Have you always wanted to learn to skate? Or have you taken a break from skating and want to get back on the ice? This class is for you! Join us in our new Adult Learn to Skate program. In these 45 minute classes, participants will learn proper skating technique, backward skating, turns etc. You will learn at your own pace in a fun environment.

Classes are designed to teach and help skaters master the basic fundamentals of skating in a group setting. Our qualified Instructors will use a variety of games and teaching tools to make this a fun, safe and educational experience for participants!Participants MUST provide their own skates, mitts and hockey helmet.  (helmet must be CSA Approved-Canadian Standards Association).  Face cage is recommended for Level 1 and 2, but not mandatory.

Bicycle or road hockey helmets are NOT permitted.

Hockey skates or figure skates with laces are recommended over adjustable, plastic skates.

Please arrive 15 minutes early on the first class to provide sufficient time to get skates tied properly and tightly, check in, and meet the instructor off ice.


The adult learn to skate class is led by a qualified instructor who will base the lessons on the participants' current abilities. The adult classes are designed to give adults both structured instruction time and also supervised practice time to work on skills that were taught.

If the participant have a basic understanding of skating; typically, the instructor will move on to more difficult skills such as backward skating, crossovers, stopping, turns. The instructors are also very open to teaching skills that the participants are interested in learning.
