Learn to Skate

MASK POLICY- 2/18/22

As of February 18th, 2022, face masks/coverings are no longer required to enter our facility. For health and safety reasons, the Greensboro Ice House recommends that guests continue to wear masks in common areas.

Our Learn to Skate group classes are for students ages 5 to adult- beginners through advanced skaters. Classes begin with the fundamentals and progress to more advanced and specialized skills, for both figure skating and ice hockey.

Summer 2022 Semester

Summer 2022 Learn to Skate classes begin Tuesday, June 7th, and Saturday, June 11th. Classes are available for all skill levels, ages 5 and up. Each hour-long session includes 30 minute weekly class PLUS 30 minutes of practice ice for students directly after!

Returning Skaters:

If you are a returning skater (enrolled in LATE SPRING 2022 or prior), register for the level indicated on your most recent progress report.

Try-It Classes

If you or your skater are uncertain about joining our classes, we invite you to try attending a class for a $20 “Try-it” class fee. If you decide to enroll for the remaining semester at the end of the Try-it class, and the coach approves it, the Try-it class fee will be applied to the semester tuition. If your child is not yet ready to participate in classes, we’ll simply collect the $20 “Try-it” class fee. 

Please be aware that we only allow try-it classes on a limited basis for the first few weeks of the semester.
