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 4 weeks of the semester.
