On your child’s first day of skating,
We’re going to let you in on a little secret.
The first time your child skates—he or she will fall. The best part, your child will get right back up. Anything’s possible when your child skates for the first time. So prepare yourself and your child for the expected and unexpected. On the first day of class, students will meet off ice with their instructor to go over class procedures and new skater introductions.
Be on time.
1. Arrive a good 20 minutes before class kicks off to check in at the registration desk.
2. Your skater will receive a name tag and on the name tag you will see a color this color will be "their group level/name"
3. Lace up skates. Skates can be rented from the rink but rentals are not included in the group lesson pricing. Remember to only allow your skaters to walk on protective surfaces, NEVER WALK ON CONCRETE with skates (unless the blades have hard guards). Used Skates can also be purchased from the Clubs Skate Swap, or we are happy to guide you in the process of buying a new pair.
4. Students will meet off ice at 4:15pm with their instructor look for the matching color on the name tag to coaches binders. Skaters will meet off-ice for the first few classes. Snowplow Sam Class will always meet and do their warm-up office at 4:15pm-4:30pm. Coaches will go over class procedures and new skater introductions. This is also good time to meet and become acquainted with your new instructor and ask any questions you may have.

Helmets and Head Protection
All SNOWPLOW SAM SKATERS, ages 3-6, must wear a helmet. Nothing is to be worn underneath the helmet for proper fitting. Any new skaters to Learn to Skate USA are also encouraged to wear a hat or bring and wear a helmet for the first few class until a comfortable balance is established. We recommend CSA helmets!
Bring lots of layers.
Comfort and moving freely about are essential for new skaters. Choose sweatpants or warm-up pants instead of bulkier snow pants. Bring a jacket too, since indoor rinks do set thermostats at a brisk 50 degrees Fahrenheit. No heavy ski clothes as they prohibit movement and bending.
Thin over thick. Bulkier, thicker socks limit support and movement and create unwanted bumps inside the boots. Go with lightweight socks or thinner tights.
Gloves are preferable to mittens as they provide articulation. Either way, mittens or gloves are suitable.
Fall Session Begins October 1st, 2019!
