We are very happy to be able to fully reopen our very popular Skating School classes starting on June 15. Every student who had classes remaining when the rink was forced to close on March 14, 2020 will get a prorated credit to apply to these new classes. In addition to the prorated credit amount each student is due based on how many class sessions remained when the rink closed, we are giving each student an ADDITIONAL 10% CREDIT BONUS that can be applied to any new class offering.

We understand that some of you might want to wait before coming back to class; all credits, including the 10% bonus, will be available throughout all of 2021 for any class offering.

Here, you will find a list of all the classes that were in operation as of March 14, 2020, and the associated credit (and bonus) that is available. If you don't know which class you were in, you can go into your Ice Center account for that information.

To be eligible for the credit, you will need to register for your new classes on-line. Because of limitations of our software, when you register it will show the full price of the class. However, before your credit card is actually charged, we will manually apply the credit and bonus you are owed. Your card will only be charged for the balance due. You can view the details of your transaction from your Ice Center account once it's processed. Click HERE to go to the page showing the new class schedule, registration information and payment.
