Learn-to-Skate at Gardner Park Register View Cart

Learn-to-Skate lessons at Gardner Park are introductory programs that help brand new skaters gain confidence and learn the basic skill of ice skating. Children will learn how to move on ice, improve balance and coordination. Lessons are taught by local instructors who are very experienced skaters and have a desire to work with children.

Skill Level
While all are welcome to participate, Learn-to-Skate lessons are geared toward children who have little or no experience on skates. 

Equipment
All participants must wear a helmet while participating in skating lessons at Gardner Memorial Park. Additional equipment (elbow pads, knee pads, hand/wrist guards, hockey shorts etc.) are not mandatory, but they do help eliminate the fear of falling in young skaters, which is one of the biggest reasons children give-up on the skill. Children who are properly equipped with safety gear tend to develop confidence more quickly and will have an easier time sticking with the program.
Ice skates and pads to borrow are also available through the program, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Children will use the same skates & equipment through the duration of the three week program.
