ALL NEW AND RETURNING Learn to Skate students MUST pay an annual membership fee of $45, which includes your Learn to Skate USA yearly membership, in addition to also being insured on the ice with us. Small & Tall Skaters: For insurance purposes, both the parent and child must have a Learn to Skate USA Membership.

 Memberships for the 2020/2021 calendar year will begin on July 1, 2020 and expire on June 30, 2021. 

As you begin registration, you will be prompted to answer "yes" when asked if you need an annual membership. 

Because our software system is programmed to connect annual memberships and class registrations together, failure to pay for your membership will result in your child being left off all rostering.  Please make sure you pay for your membership to avoid this from happening.  We will not be able to add your child unless both membership and class registration is fully completed and purchased. 


Face coverings: For the health and safety of our skaters and coaches, we are requiring face coverings for all Learn to Skate participants. If you do not have a face covering, one will be provided for you at check-in. Thank you for helping keep our community healthy!

Class Sizes: Our class sizes are limited to 15 per class, with a minimum of 5. We reserve the right to cancel or combine a class due to low enrollment.
