The River's Edge Learn to Skate program offers a diverse variety of classes for people of all ages seeking to learn a new sport. Our eight week seasonal sessions run year round. We offer beginner snowplow, basic skills, free skate, hockey, and adult classes at an affordable price.

Group lessons take place on Thursday evenings or Saturday mornings. Students register to attend only one day each week but can register for both days if you'd wish to receive more instruction time. All of our instructors are Safe Sport certified and professionally accredited through Learn to Skate USA. 

Eight week sessions run year around please follow this link for specific dates and times.  All current Learn to Skate memberships expire on June 30th, 2019 and will need to be renewed at Learn to Skate USA for the 2019-2020 year. This will be valid until June 30th, 2020.  To determine what class to sign your skater up for, see the chart below for class times and requirements.
