Skating at Community Rinks

Learn to Skate - Drop-in Programs

Thank you to the Leagues, Ice Makers, and all who participated in our 2019 Learn to Skate Programs. For 2020 Learn to Skate programs, check back when the snow falls again!

The program is designed around basic skills, movement, participation and fun! You can expect skills for speed, agility, and control. All of which will give you the skills for other types of skating. This free program is targeted for children ages 6-12 and their families, however, all are welcome to attend!

Bring your skates and a CSA approved helmet.


Programs will be cancelled at -23 degrees Celsius with the wind-chill, or if the ice is closed by the facility.
