Private Lessons

We offer private lessons to all levels. Choosing to take a private lesson can allow you to enhance your skating skills, boost your confidence, participate in competitions and tests. Please take a look at our coaches and contact them individually to schedule lessons.

Coaches are private contractors. Selecting one and continuing with them is between you and the coach. You are responsible for contacting them regarding all aspects of private instruction. The rink does not set up private lessons.

 

Choosing a Coach

First, take a look at our instructor list and learn some highlights of that individual. Then, set up a trial lesson with that instructor. If the coaches teaching style works well with you, then talk about setting up something more permanent with that instructor.

At any time if you feel that it is in your best interest to change coaches, communicate with your coach FIRST before making any other decisions. If you have questions about a coaching change, please contact the skating director.
