Private Lessons

We Offer Private Lesssons!

Some students enrolled in our Learn to Skate Program want to excell and move through the levels at a faster rate. If this is the case, we're ready to help. Lessons are typically 20 or 30 minutes long & we teach both figure skating & hockey skating skills!

Your instructor will show you how to complete a private lesson slip for each lesson, and instruct you on ice time fees. Our private contractors are members of the Professional Skaters Association, United States Figure Skating and hold a background clearance from NCSI National Center for Safety Initiatives. Our instructors are private contractors who set their own schedule & rates. Please contact them directly.
