Penguin Program

Our “Penguin” program is our learn to skate preschool program for children age 18 months to 5 years old (kindergartners). We have special games and activities that cater to the preschool age. We have the biggest toy box around! Lessons are customized for each age group and ability and their physical, mental and emotional capabilities. We teach our children through play, visual aids and enthusiasm. Each lesson ends with a sticker and a professionally supervised free skate. Come have fun while learning how to skate! In the Penguin Program, you save the $30 registration fee compared to Learn to Skate. All Skaters must bring their own bike helmet, single blade skates, warm clothes and gloves. This “Special” is only valid for the session listed below.

 

Please Note: All pre-schoolers are also welcome to join our Learn to Skate Program.

All classes are on a first come first serve basis. You will be enrolled in your first choice of class, unless you receive a phone call. If you receive your first choice, you will not receive confirmation. A completed application, release form and payment must be provided before a skater is allowed on Sharper Edge ice.

We will charge a $25.00 fee for all returned checks.

 

Make-Up Day

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.

 

Certificates

Each skater will receive a certificate at the end of each session to 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 website 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 45 minute classes.
45 minute classes = 30 minute lesson and 15 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.
