LEARN TO ICE SKATE PROGRAMS

The Andover Skate School provides students age 3 - 15 with basic ice skating skills. Each level, introduces new skills which build on the skills they have already mastered. Students are evaluated the first day of program and coaches will move them to a class and/or level that best suits their skating ability. Each student receives a punch card the first day of program to be used towards skate rental, skate sharpening and/or future open skate sessions so they can practice their skills. Double blade ice skates or skates with a hard upper shell (those resembling rollerblades) are not allowed.

Students are evaluated during the last two days of lessons and achievement cards and certificates will be awarded. Students must pass all skills to advance to the next level. Parents, siblings and friends are not allowed on the ice during lessons or practice times, with the exception of the PALS class, one parent is required to be on-ice with student at all times.

Before you register your child for a program, please review the Class Descriptions and Skill Level Guide  and choose the program, class and level that best describes your child's current ice skating skill ability.
