Skating School

Our Skating School is one of the largest in the Bay Area and we want your skating experience to be memorable. Classes are available for all levels and ages. We teach both hockey and figure skating. All our classes are taught by professional instructors who have competed in national level figure skating competitions, or those with more than 10 years teaching experience.

We work hard to create a supportive environment where students can learn at their own pace. We believe that “fun” is important to learning and we consciously bring it into every learning experience.

Classes are offered on Wednesdays and Saturdays in 6, 7, or 8 week sessions. Most classes are 30 minutes. There is practice time available on the day of the lesson. Students are also encouraged to come to the rink to practice on other days to help reinforce learning. At the end of each session students are evaluated to determine if they have gained the skills needed to graduate to the next class level. See class schedule and more information on New to Skating and Learn to Skate classes. A registration form is available here.

We use the ISI (Ice Sports Industry) class format and testing levels in most of our classes. Membership in the ISI is required for all skaters taking classes at the Pre-Alpha (or Intermediate Adult) level or higher. New skaters starting off in the Tot 1, Tot 2, Beginning, Parent & Me, or Beginning Adult classes are not required to pay the ISI fee until they reach Pre-Alpha, Intermediate Adult or wish to participate in an ISI competition.

Some specialty classes are also available for figure skaters. These include Axel classes, Double Jump Workshop, Stroking, Synchronized skating, Ice Dancing, and Freestyle Workshop. Some of these classes run longer than 30 minutes. See class schedule for more information on adult and specialty classes.
