TOWN CENTER CLASS INFORMATION AND SCHEDULE
Ice skating is a great way to exercise and have fun at the same time! The IceForum skating school offers a positive environment for learning the correct way to skate, for helping to promote friendships, and for improving self-esteem.
The “Learn to Skate” program follows the curriculum of the USFSA. The skating school teaches basic fundamentals of skating as well as dance, pairs, field moves and hockey.
All lessons are given by a staff of highly qualified professional instructors. Please direct all inquiries to the Skating School Coordinator. The IceForum staff will do their best to answer any questions when the Skating School office is closed.LEARN TO SKATE PROGRAM
The IceForum offers group classes continuously throughout the year. This extensive schedule allows many opportunities for new enrollments as well as for continual training year round.
We have skating classes for all skill levels, from beginners to national contenders, and for ages 3 to 103!
Levels Youth Basic 1 through Youth Basic 8 exist for skaters aged 6 - 18. Adults and their family members aged 15 and above may participate in our accelerated Adult Basic 1 - 4 classes. For our youngest skaters, aged 3 - 6, we have the Snowplow Sam Series, levels 1, 2, and 3. Tots who pass all three Snowplow Sam levels, and who demonstrate the emotional and intellectual maturity necessary for the Youth Basic series, may continue at that level.
Students, their family members, and other supporters should not be concerned if it takes more than one class semester for the skater to successfully complete any given level. No two skaters progress at exactly the same rate, and the learning rate varies from week to week even for the same skater. Each skater is encouraged and allowed to progress at their own rate.
Skaters who pass or Adult Basic 4 may progress to our advanced level classes: Freeskate 1-6. Skaters at or above this level may also choose to take private lessons. Skaters should consult with an instructor for information on private lessons and advanced skating levels.

First Day Of Class:
On the first day of class, students should arrive at least 15 minutes early. Students must bring their class registration card to every class and have it checked off at the front counter. Students must also have their class registration card in order to be admitted to the free practice session. Lost cards may be replaced for a fee. All skating class levels and the instructor's names will be posted on the lobby wall. Students will meet their instructor next to their posted class level. At the time of the second and remaining classes, students should meet their instructor on the ice.
What to Wear:
It is recommended that Tots and young children wear a hat or helmet. Gloves or mittens are also helpful for all skaters. Students should wear long pants or other skating attire that allows freedom of movement. A sweater or jacket is recommended.
