Private Lessons

Whatever your level of experience and interest in skating, individual instruction may be the best way to fine-tune your figure skating or hockey skills. Our professional staff follows the coaching requirements set forth by U.S. Figure Skating.  All coaches are members of US Figure Skating, compliant with USFS Continuing Education Requirements and carry private insurance as mandated by USFS.  All coaches listed are members of the Professional Skaters Association, an organization dedicated to the education, training, and accreditation of figure skating and hockey coaches worldwide.  Our rink is a member of the PSA Excellence On Ice Program.

Private lessons are a wonderful option for skaters of any level, from beginner to advanced, to work one on one with a professional coach. Lessons are typically scheduled in 15 minute increments. Availability is determined by individual coaches. You may set up private lessons with any coach by contacting them directly.  Private lessons can be advantageous for a figure skater’s personal goals, abilities and available time.  Hockey, speed or recreational skaters may also benefit from individual training to find and troubleshoot select skating problems.

Cancellations happen from time to time when private lessons are scheduled.  It is understood that life happens, however, instructors do require at least a 24-hour cancellation for all private lessons or the lesson needs to be paid for even though it did not occur.  Please remember, instructors plan their days too, and must also commute to the rink and pay for ice time.  Respecting this need for a notice allows the opportunity to rebook the vacated time slot.  Thank you for understanding and always being on time!

If you have questions about private lessons or finding a coach for you, contact Skating Director Nick Kraft.
