LCA Learn to Skate (Saturdays) – Sherry Thompson

Children/Youth Program

  • 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!
  • Your child needs to be at least 4 years old and no older than 12 years old.
  • All participants need a CSA approved helmet.  Bike helmets are not sufficient since they don’t offer appropriate protection for the back of the child’s head.

Adult Program (18+)

  • For adult classes helmets are strongly recommended, but not mandatory.
  • A good opportunity if you have no experience or just a little experience on the ice.
  • Please come with sharpened skates and warm clothes.
