Private Instruction

How to choose a private lesson coach?

Read below about our coaches and contact them directly to find out rates/availability. Perhaps schedule trial lessons with a few coaches to determine the best fit for you or your skater.

Let the coach know this is a trial lesson to keep communication clear.

We have a number of skilled trainers available to offer of skaters private instructions (listed in alphabetical order). Please contact coaches directly for schedule and rate information. Ice time is paid separately to the rink and is in addition to the private lesson price.

Upon arrival to the rink, sign in and pay for your ice time upon arrival at admission desk- one hour price minimum (30 minutes increments after the first hour). You pay your private lesson coach directly to the coach.

Admission and skate rental are NOT included in the price of your private lesson. 

In the event that you would desire to change coaches, please respect your current coach and inform the coach of your wish to discontinue and make sure all accounts are paid in full. Changing coaches should not interfere with your fellow skater or coaches relationships.

Please maintain contact information of your coach especially to inform them of any schedule changes or cancellations to give them proper notice.
