Program Snapshot

Boots to Blades
Instruction through movement and games adapted to enhance skating skills. This level is for children with no previous skating experience. A parent or guardian must accompany the child on the ice.

Mini Gliders
Designed for children who are able to stand and shuffle on the ice without help.

As the child develops his/her skating skills, there are several different skating programs available to accommodate each participant's needs.

As a result of on-going assessments, participants may be moved to a different level to ensure the success and safety of everyone in the program.
