HOW DO I SCHEDULE A MAKE-UP CLASS?
Please avoid make-ups during the first week and the final week of classes. You can make-up a class by attending any other day of Skate School that the class or class equivalent is offered. When checking in for your make-up, please visit the Front Office to obtain your name tag. During testing week, it is requested for skaters to attend only ONE class during the week (preferably the enrolled day) as this week is only an evaluation with no new content being introduced. Make-up classes are only valid during the enrolled session and cannot be transferred to future sessions.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We recommend dressing in layers including pants that allow for movement. Bring gloves or mittens and wear thin socks that come above the ankle.Helmets are VERY STRONGLY recommended especially for beginners. A snow cap rolled up in the back will also provide extra padding. Snow pants are great for tots their first days to stay dry as they are finding their balance.
