2016-17 Learn 2 Skate - PARTICIPANT This beginner's program is for children ages 4-7 approximately.  Children learn to skate in a fun and supportive environment with basic drills and lots of fun games.  Skaters learn basics including standing on skates, moving forward, stopping, falling, getting up, using the skate blade to push and glide.  Children must have an accompanying adult on the ice until child is able to get up on their own.  Experience has taught us that if we have parent participation in the first few months, we have an accelerated learning curve with this group.  Practices run Mondays and Thursdays from 4:30-5:00 pm. 2016-09-01 2017-08-31
