You get out what you put in...

... If you want to see results, you have to put the work in! The most amount of improvement is seen with frequent and well-balanced training, both on and off ice. 

See below for a guideline to get started.

Make sure you are properly nourished! A well balanced diet consists of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and protein. Stay hydrated!

Stepping onto the Ice

First things first: get warm! Complete a few laps of stroking, skulling, slaloms. Run through all jumps and spins. Warm up should take 5 min.

Ice Skater
During Lessons

When it is time for your lesson, I will call you over. Please do not interrupt other skaters' lesson time. Remember to bring a can-do attitude to each lesson!

Outdoor Ice Skating Rink
Arriving at the Rink

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your session time begins. Grab a buddy and complete some off-ice warm ups to get ready.

During the Session

The session is self-directed time to practice your elements. Use your time wisely to practice and try new things! Remember tips from lessons.

After the Session

Take this time to gently stretch your muscles and relax while reflecting on how your session went. What went well? What can we improve upon next time? Great work out there!
