14 Oct Teen & Adult Learn to Skate
The Teen/Adult Learn to Skate program is designed to teach teens and adults of all ages basic skating skills or to improve upon skills that have been learned in the past. It is a fun program that enhances a healthy and active lifestyle. Ice hockey helmets are mandatory for Learn to Skate skaters who have not yet completed stage 5.
We offer Teen/Adult Beginner Skate, Teen/Adult Intermediate Skate, and Teen/Adult Advance Skate.

Teen/Adult Intermediate Skate
Teen/Adult Intermediate Skate is for skaters 12 years of age and up that want to continue to work and build on their skating skills. They are comfortable with skating forward and backward and would like to learn more complex skills.
