Ice Center Skating School

Ice skating is an exciting, invigorating and enjoyable activity. The Ice Center of Cupertino has the largest single surface Skating School in the United States. In the Ice Center Skating School, you'll learn the skills that will enable you to enjoy a lifetime of fun and exercise. Step-by-step instruction in pleasant, supervised surroundings makes learning safe and easy. New skaters are always welcomed. Classes are grouped by age and ability, and meet once per week. In addition, you can come out and practice what you have learned anytime because enrollment in the Skating School allows you FREE ADMISSION to all public skating sessions. No other rink offers that kind of value.
