Get to the rink, dressed to skate (except for your skates) 10 minutes before your first class begins. Check in at the sign-in table or front desk.

Beginner classes will meet off the ice and time will be taken to ensure the skates fit and are laced correctly. We recommend you arrive at the rink ready to skate 10 minutes prior to the lesson time in order to allow time to get your skates on for the lesson. Be ready to enter the ice at the start of class. Your skill level will also be assessed in the first class to be sure you are in the correct level.
