Learn To Skate
The Ice House Learn To Skate("LTS") program is ranked among the 10 best programs in the entire country by the United States Figure Skating Association. The LTS program consists of a comprehensive lesson and testing structure that is very exciting, rewarding, safe and fun. It has been a great success for many years and is a great way to learn how to skate and meet people. Whether your goal is to achieve Olympic fame or simply enjoy the recreational benefits of skating, the Ice House LTS program is the ideal thing for you.
We have proficiency levels ranging from Basic 1 to Pre-Freeskate. For our 4 and 5 year olds we offer a 4 level Tot program (called Snowplow Sam) to prepare them for our regular classes. We also offer Parent/Tot classes for 2 & 3 year olds! The skater will learn various techniques such as stopping and turning, just to name a few.
Every week one of our designated testers will evaluate the kids to see if the skater is ready to advance to the next level. Once the skater has successfully passed a test, we will immediately move him/her to the next level and give them a certificate of achievement. No skater is held back in a class that is too easy for them.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. We will be happy to help. Have fun.
