Don’t be late: Please note that returning students to our weekend classes (those who have already taken their first class) must be signed in no later than 15 minutes before class is set to start. Classes start “on the hour” so arrive at 10:45am for 11am classes, 9:45am for 10am classes and 8:45am for 9am classes. Early warm up starts at 8:30am.
New Students: You must arrive no later than 10:30am on Saturdays or Sundays to attend your FIRST class. Beginner-1 starts at 10:50am on both Saturday and Sundays
Before arriving at the rink, you MUST also
1.) Set up an account and
2.) Register for the B1 class (no matter what level of ability), prior to attending your first class. (B1)
We apologize in advance for the time it takes to set up the first class and thank you, in advance, for your adherence to these procedures. Once you are registered with an account and a class, and you show up at the times designated above, it’s time to ROLL! You’ll be so glad you did and we’ll be so glad to have you join us!
For Self Taught Skaters who believe they are beyond the Level 1 (can stop easily etc), we are happy to offer an assessment, contact Trish (see bottom of page) to set up this opportunity. However, please still sign up for the B1 Class as that is the procedure to be placed into an upper level class.
BYOH: Bring your own helmet. Kids, this is a must, bike helmet is fine. It’s a hygiene thing!
