Classes are all done for the season! Thanks to all who participated. Check back in September for fall 2022 programming. 

LCA Learn to Skate is a great way for your child to learn the basics of ice skating.  Come have some fun and learn a really useful skill!

Saturday Classes – Sherry Thompson will be leading Learn to Skate classes on Saturdays at the Optimist Arena, with classes available for 4-12 year olds and for adults (18 and up).

For liability reasons, parents are NOT allowed on the ice during instruction of any LCA Learn to Skate kids classes.

Child(ren) MUST be able to be on own for the complete class.  These are not parent/tot classes.

What to expect:

  • We help any skater who has never skated before to be able to stand and move comfortably on the ice.
  • We help to work on improving techniques for those skaters who can already move on the ice.
  • We work on different skills like balance, skating forwards and backwards, starts, turns and stops.

Equipment needed:

  • For COVID safety masks will be required for children and instructors in this class both on and off the ice.
  • Sharp skates with good ankle support
  • A helmet that covers the front (needs to cover the skater’s forehead) and back of a skater’s head. Bike helmets are not sufficient since they don’t offer appropriate protection for the back of the child’s head
  • Regular winter mitts or gloves
  • Come dressed to be on the ice for the whole class time

Is there Financial help available?

Yes, if needed, through Kidsport or Jumpstart.
