Group Lessons

Group Lessons are our most popular skating Lesson format for ages four and up and provide skaters with a strong foundation for figure skating, hockey skating, or lifelong recreational skating.

To ensure Lessons are enjoyable and safe for everyone, we recommend all beginning skaters try skating during Public Skating or Parent and Puppy Practice Sessions prior to the first day of Group Lessons. Please refer to the Snoopy’s Home Ice calendar on the Home Page or viewing a hard copy in the Arena Lobby for these Session times.

Each eight-week Lesson Set, skaters progress through one Level within a Skating Track.  At the end of a Lesson Set, skaters are evaluated to determine whether they pass their current Level or will need improvement and to repeat their current Level. The Tracks follow the curriculum set forth by Learn to Skate USA, endorsed by United States Figure Skating.  For detailed curriculum, please click here:
