Learn to Skate Lessons

The Learn to Skate program advances skaters on a natural progression: children ages three to five must begin in the Tot Program; children ages six and up begin with the Basic Program. Teens 12+ and Adults of all ages are welcome to participate in a Basic class for Teens and Adults. Tot lessons are 30 minutes long and held once a week for seven weeks. All other Learn-to-Skate classes are 45 minutes long and are also held once a week for seven weeks.

Tot Classes: Ages 3-5

Basic Classes: Ages 6+

Teen/Adult: 12+

New skaters begin with either Tot 1 or Basic 1, depending on their age. Skaters who have passed all six levels of the Basic Program can continue to Aspire levels. Please contact the rink at (440) 974-5730 for more information on freestyle lessons.

Specialty Classes:

Competition Class is part of the Learn to Skate Program and is open to any skater who has passed Tot 1 or Basic 1. Your skater will learn a program to music, and have an opportunity to compete at an LTS competition at the end of the session. The program will incorporate skills that your skater has mastered in their previous Learn to Skate Class.

Inspire Synchronized Skating is part of the Learn to Skate Program and is open to any skater who has passed Tot 1 or Basic 1. The class is designed to teach the fundamentals of synchronized skating. The team will practice skills and learn a routine.
