  1. Hi! My name is Lisa and I have two boys, 3 and 5. My 5 yr old recently received a neighbor’s hand me down roller blades (errr inline skates?). Do you offer packages for multie lessons? Can he bring the roller blades he received? Can he use a trainer to hold onto? Thanks for your help!

     
    • I think they are a lil too big yet btw but he has been really interested in them and practicing…we went and got him knee/elbow pads and gloves. Should we bring those? Sorry for all the questions lol! Haven’t taken them skating yet but I used to go every weekend as a teenager!

       
    • Learning to skate is fun and challenging. However the younger you learn, the easier as kids are used to learning new things everyday and pushing their physical abilities: balance, agility, etc. It’s the perfect time to learn. Bring them to our skate lessons, join several sessions; no reservations required, come when it fits in your schedule. They can wear knee pads, gloves and helmets if you like; they are not required. We do have skate trainers, however the goal is to get them to the point they don’t need the trainer.

       
    • We offer group skate lessons every Saturday and Sunday morning. Saturdays begin at 9:15am and Sundays begin at 11:45am. The lessons are $6 for a 45 minute lesson. They take students from the very basic skills to more advanced skills. Participants move through levels of small groups based on their personal development. We begin with starting and stopping, falling without getting hurt and then getting up again. We then move to skating backward, scissors and cross over skating.

       
  2. I am 36 years old and from a different culture and country. I have never skate in my life, if i can remember. I want to begin my skate lessons and master it. Is that possible?

  3. What is the minimum age? Do you have toddler skates? My daughter is 3 and Im considering bringing a small group of friends to a session. Yay or nay?

     
    • It’s never too early to learn to skate. If they can walk, they can skate. Younger children actually learn easier. They have less fear of falling. We have skates for toddlers, some are actual skates, some are plastic skates that attach to their shoes.
      We do offer skate lessons on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This is a great time to learn to skate. We divide participants by skill and teach from the basics up: start, stop, fall safely, getting up, backward skate. Then more advanced moves: Cannon Ball, Cross Overs, Scissors, etc.

       
  4. Hi I am a older person near 50th year of age and I bought a
    Groupon to learn how to stop and backward skate. I just need some help with that along with some practice to use my legs perhaps to skate better.

     
    • It’s always a great time to learn to skate. Congratulations on purchasing our skate lessons through Groupon. You may bring your voucher to our ticket window any Saturday or Sunday morning for our group lessons. Once you are here, you will be placed with a small group based on your skate skill level and what you need to learn (people of all ages are in each group). The lesson is 45 minutes. Lesson participants are invited to stay for our first Open Skate session immediately following the lessons. There is no charge for admission to the Open Skate Session immediately following your lesson. This offer is only good the day of your lesson and cannot be transferred to another day or session. We look forward to seeing you around the rink soon.
