Private Lessons

Wheaton Ice Arena has many coaches who offer private and semi-private lessons.  Only coaches who have contracts with the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC), Montgomery Parks may teach private lessons here.  Private instructor fees are paid directly to the instructor.  Skaters will also need to pay for admission/ice time and skate rental (if needed) before the private lesson.  Private lessons are for 1-2 skaters only.  Bigger groups will need to contact the Skating Director to set up a custom group class.

Arranging Private Lessons

Please take the following steps and contact instructors directly to schedule a lesson:

  1. Contact one of our instructors to arrange for a private lesson time.
  2. Agree on a lesson time with the instructor considering your personal calendar and the instructor’s availability.
  3. If needed, pre-register for ice time (public skating, freestyle session, Stick ‘n puck session) in Active Montgomery or plan to pay at the rink before skating.
  4. Be sure to set up a meeting spot with your instructor for your first lesson.
