  • Arrive approximately 20 minutes before the first lesson to gauge how much time is needed for you to pick up rental skates (if you need them) and familiarize yourself with the ice skating rink.
  • Skaters should dress warmly, using gloves, hats and layered clothing to be absolutely comfortable. Parents of skaters under 5 yeas of age, should consider providing their youngsters with a bike helmet for additional protection. Better safe than sorry.
