Learn To Skate

Our Learn to Skate Program is a first step into the sport of skating, whether it is Hockey or Figure Skating. For the skater who has mastered the skills of Learn to Skate, we also offer a Club or Hockey Program. When your child is ready, we will provide you with more information about these opportunities or information about girls'/boys' Hockey programs in the area.

We offer the following learn to Skate programs:

 

Penguin Program: This is our Intro to Learn to Skate program designed for Preschoolers. We offer this to ages 18 months through Kindergarten age. These programs are offered only in the morning during the week. If a child is unable to attend Penguin Program times, he/she is also eligible for the Learn to Skate program.

 

Learn to Skate Program: This is our general Learn to Skate Program designed for children and adults of all ages. These classes are offered daily except on Fridays and Sundays. All ages are accepted into the Learn to Skate program.

 

Hockey Program: This is our Learn to Skate Hockey Program. This program is offered to children who have demonstrated the skating skills required to advance into our Hockey Program. Each skater must have completed the Sharper Edge Learn to Skate Program or an equivalent learn to skate program. The Director and Hockey coach will determine your child’s readiness.

One make-up class is allowed per session. This must be completed during the current session. No make-ups are allowed during the first 2 weeks of the session. Please contact the office to arrange a make-up time. There are no walk-on make-ups allowed. Penguin Program skaters will only be allowed to make up a class during other Penguin Program class times.

 

Bring a Friend

At the close of each session, the skaters will be allowed to invite a friend to come skate with them during class. Parents of the skaters are allowed to be “friends.” Each friend must provide a signed release form. You will be notified in writing when this will be offered. **This does not apply to the Penguin Program.

 

Certificates

Each skater will receive a certificate at the end of each session. This will inform you of the level which the skater has passed. Sharper Edge Skating School follows the guidelines of the ISI (Ice Skating Institute). To learn more about the ISI, you can check the web site at www.skateisi.com. Our Learn to Skate program follows the rules and regulations of Tot 1 - 4

 

How to Dress

It is easier to control your child's body temperature if you dress him/her in layers. Have the child wear loose comfortable clothing so that body movement will not be restricted. Snow pants are recommended to keep the skater from getting wet when he/she falls. Waterproof gloves or mittens are best so that their hands stay warm and dry.

 

Helmets

For the safety of your child, HELMETS must be worn by children under the age of (7) seven. We recommend HELMETS for all Learn to Skaters including older children and adults. Bike helmets, ski helmets and hockey helmets (with or without the cage) are acceptable.

 

Class Contents

On the day of each skating class, please check in at the front desk.
We offer (1) one hour classes and 45 minute classes.
One hour classes = 45 minute lesson and 15 minute supervised free skate.
30 minute classes = 20 minute lesson and 10 minute supervised free skate.
Fun and games are always incorporated into the lessons. We give out stickers to all the skaters at the end of each class. Free skate means that the skater will freely skate around to music. This is an opportunity for them to practice their maneuvers by themselves. Free skate is always supervised by the coaches but no coaching is done at this time. Please be considerate to the other skaters in the class and arrive on time. We respectfully request that parents send healthy skaters to class. If your child has had a fever within the last 24 hours or exhibits obvious cold symptoms, please do not send your child to skating.

 

Cancellations

Especially during the winter months, weather related cancellations will be recorded on our answering machine at (978) 369 - 0088. Classes each session might have it’s own cancellation dates. Please look for scheduled cancellation dates on the "Application" under NO ICE and write them down!
