Group classes are a great option for skaters who are looking to learn the basics and improve their skills in a supportive and social environment. Classes are led by an instructor who will provide instruction and feedback to all students. Group classes are typically more affordable than private lessons and are a great way to meet other skaters who have similar interests.
Pro: Classes are taught when the rink is closed to the general public & when the lights are on.
Con: There is one teacher for the group so skaters get some, but minimal, individualized feedback.

tips for children
1. Get Them Skates
If your child is 7 or younger, please consider purchasing them their own skates. The skates offered at the rink will be very slippery and heavy. If you get them their own skates, Coach Jackie can tighten their wheels to make them easier to stand on (this will take 10 minutes of the lesson).
2. Start with A 1-on-1
Start off with a 25 minute private lesson... especially if it is their first 1-2 times on skates and keep it solo. It is possible to add another skater to a private, but kids typically need A LOT of help those first few skates. If you do end up doing a double lesson, it is best to cut the lesson in half and allow the teacher to focus on each skater for one-half the allotted time.
3. Know this...
The first 1-3 days of roller skating will feel and seem IMPOSSIBLE for most people & especially young ones. Day 1 is usually a lot of falls, but don't worry, it is all part of the process. On day's 3-5 they should be standing up over their wheels a lot more and rolling... but it might take a little longer for them to look like they are actually skating. For the best learning curve, try to get your kid in skates 3x a week. If that isn't possible, shoot for at least 1x a week.
