Our indoor skating rink is conveniently located in the central part of Oakville, and is open all year round offering learn to skate and figure skating lessons during Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall seasons.
Skating classes are offered on an On Demand basis where there is enough demand for these lessons during given class times. We use a Glice rink that can be place down and removed as needed, and all scheduled skating classes listed on our website are on a proposed basis until they are confirmed.
Our learn to skate program is specifically designed for beginners. Our skating classes follow the nationally accredited Learn to Skate program that is used all across Canada. These learn to skate lessons are taught in small skater to coach ratio classes to allow each skater to get the attention that they need to learn to skate. We offer three selections of age groups for classes, Tots ages 3 to 5, Children ages 6 to 12 and for Adults.
For skaters that have already completed the learn to skate program or who are able to already skate on their own, we offer Junior Figure Skating programs for those that are interesting in continuing on to learning this. These programs are offered by certified figure skating coaches and are designed to introduce skaters to figure skating and is a program for beginner figure skaters.
We offer power skating programs for skaters that have completed the learn to skate program or can skate well on their own and are interesting in pursuing hockey. These skating classes are taught by cerified power skating and hockey coaches. Power skating lessons are designed to give skaters that are new to hockey or looking to improve their skills in skating the basics for power skating and hockey.

10. How does the Learn to Skate Level system work?
In our Learn to Skate program coaches teach the same skills to all skaters in levels 1, 2 and 3. We DO NOT seperate learn to skate classes by level or age. The only different between these levels is skill level of skaters. As skaters progress through the levels their skills in the elements along with skaters that are more or less experienced skaters. If you have concerns about your child being in a class that is too advanced or not advanced enough the best ways to resolve this are going to Member Services in your account and requesting a class change, arranging private lessons or request a consultation by phone.
11. How should my child be dressed for skating classes?
Our learn to skate classes are indoors at room temperature so they can just dress the same way they would at school and don't need to wear jackets or snow pants. For the Tots Learn to Skate Program tots should be wearing gloves to protect their hands. This is in case they fall so that other tots do not step on their hands with their skates that can result in cuts.
