Hockey Skating Class Information

 
  • Skaters should dress warmly; full hockey gear is encouraged but not required.  Falling down is part of learning. Warm clothes and padding will help students of any level overcome the fear of learning something new.  

 

  • Rental hockey skates are provided with class registration; hockey helmets are highly encouraged but not provided. 

 

  • Plan to arrive 15-30 minutes early to allow time to check in and get your skates fitted securely in time for class. Skates should fit snuggly and be tied tightly.

 

  • 7th Week of Class - Progress Report Day!  You or your skater wll be evaluated on the skills taught in the class and receive a progress report form.  This form will indicate whether you/your skater has mastered the moves of the level and is ready to advance to the next level.  Please note: not all skaters will advance every semester. These skills are challenging and require time to perfect. 

 

  • On the final day of class (8th week) all Skating School participants will receive a certificate of completion for their class.  All skaters will receive a certificate regardless of if they advance to the next level. 

 

  • All Skating School students in skating classes receive 6 public session passes with registration for self practice. Practice passes expire at the end of the 8 week semester. 

 

  • One make-up class is permitted per semester.  All make-up classes must be completed during the semester which you/your dancer are registered.  Make-up classes are to be completed during another regularly scheduled class of similar nature or level.
