Our My Grownup & Me Learn To Skate Program follows the USFS “Snowplow Sam” Curriculum, which is designed for skaters ages 3-6. The Snowplow Sam levels are designed to help the preschool-age skater develop preliminary coordination and strength to maneuver on the ice.  Snowplow Sam is a big, fuzzy polar bear who loves to skate. Time with Snowplow Sam will allow preschool children to become comfortable on the ice.

Once COVID restrictions are lifted, our regular club season tot class offerings  are:

Weekday afternoon Tot classes:  These classes are for Club and Public skaters ages 2 to 6 years old on either Tuesdays or Thursdays at 12:45 pm. Lessons are free for club members.  Public lessons fee is $185 for 8 weeks.  Class includes 30 minute warm-up, 30 minute group lesson, practice time and rental skates. The slot allocated to Tot Classes is 12:45 – 2:45, but your actual lesson time will be a 30 minute lesson some time during that 2 hour slot.  We will tell you the first day of class the exact time for your lesson.  All students should arrive at 12:45 the first day and lesson will occur within the first hour the first day but could change in future weeks depending on the number of enrolled tots and their abilities. Please dress warmly and bring a bicycle helmet, gloves and appropriate coat.

Two exciting tot class sections being offered during Tuesday and Thursday class time only:

  1. Intro to the Ice – a class that is fun and interactive for toddlers ages 2-5 years focusing on developing a young skater’s comfort level.  The class is taught with skaters wearing sneakers and walking out on mats on the ice.
  2. Parent & Me – bring your favorite grownup and Learn to Skate together!
