Parent & Tots



Open to skaters with little to NO skating experience.  Skaters are on the ice, accompanied by a parent for 45 minutes per session. 

Children are introduced to basic skating through action songs, games and play. Parents will directly assist their children on the ice.  There is no touch contact between coach and skaters.
