The Learn to Skate Program is a series of progressive classes for new skaters, with little to no skating experience (target age 3-7). At the introductory levels, the primary focus is proper skating technique; students will master appropriate and specific progressive skating skills that will foster a successful transition into the Pre-Hockey and Mite hockey programs.
Level 1: Falling & Getting Up; Marching, 2-foot glides, Forward Dip, Backward Wiggles, 2-foot Snowplow Stops, Forward Swizzles
Level 2: 1-foot Glides (R/L), Backward Swizzles, Scooter Pushes (R/L), 2-foot jumps, 1-foot Snowplow Stops
Equipment Requirements: Skaters in Levels 1 & 2 should not wear full equipment as it limits a skater's movement. A helmet is required. Rentals are available at the Mount Prospect Ice Arena. Please bring mittens or gloves (not hockey gloves).
MUST BE AT LEAST 3 YEARS OLD
