Back to School – Learn to Skate

Welcome to our participants of our Back to School Learn to Skate program. In addition to wearing face coverings, being able to social distance and follow directions, participants will be required to fall down, get up and take a few steps independently.

We have put together a short video to help participants learn these skating skills. Please watch the video prior to your first class day and practice falling down, getting up and taking a few steps with the participant.

Some additional tips:


  • A helmet, such as a bike helmet or HECC helmet is required. Label helmets with First Name, Last Initial using painter’s tape. Put label on the front of the helmet.
  • Rental skates are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are included in the class fee.

Other Requirements:Participants will be required to wear face coverings on the ice, must social distance, comply with FMC Ice Sports COVID Guidelines and meet requirements listed in the COVID certification waiver as acknowledged during check out.
