Registration for Session II of The Skating School opens December 7, 2017. Session II takes place from Jan. 11-March 3, 2018.

The Skating School curriculum is a combination of the best attributes of the Ice Skating Institute's Learn-to-Skate Program and the U.S. Figure Skating's Basic Skills Program. The program helps skaters progress with confidence from level to level at a quicker, more confident pace. Skaters will feel a sense of accomplishment as they master the skills necessary to become confident skaters in any ice sport.

All classes are 30 minutes in length and each session is eight weeks in length. In addition to class time, each skater is allotted 30 minutes of independent practice. Details about practice times will be provided during the first week of lessons. Registration fee includes skate rental. Classes begin promptly at the listed times. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to class for check-in and to put on skates. Non-registered participants are not permitted on the ice at any time. All Tot skaters must have a safety (bicycle or skating) helmet.
