Is it your child’s first winter on the ice? Or does your child already love to skate and he or she wants to build on the skills they already have? Or do YOU wish to improve your confidence and your ability on the ice? Never fear! Madison Parks Ice Skating Lessons are here! No matter what experience level you or your child is at, Madison Parks has the perfect group ice skating lesson for everyone.
“My family LOVED the ice skating lessons,” said one parent. “It was a great way to get my 6 and 9 year olds outside during the winter months and learn a new sport.”
Madison Parks offers multiple classes that fit every ice skater’s needs.
• Snowplow Sam 1, 2, and 3 and are for children ages 3 to 5. Snowplow Sam focuses on the preliminary skills of ice skating, such as the proper way to fall and get up, standing, forward gliding, stopping, and forward and backward swizzles.
• Basic Levels 1 and 2 are meant for beginner skaters ages 6 to 14. These classes’ main focus is building onto the preliminary skills of ice skating for older children. Some of the skills this class will teach include stopping, twirls, turns, forward and backward gliding, one foot swizzles, and other basic skills.
• Adult classes for ages 14 and up. These classes are focused on promoting physical fitness through ice skating. Each participant will be able to improve at their own rate with the guidance of the instructor.
These group ice skating classes are perfect for kids of all skating abilities. Group ice skating classes will be held once a week for a 7-week session starting the week of January 6, 2014. Each class will be taught by a US Figure Skating Association certified instructor and will last for 30 minutes. The cost of each 7-week session is $55 and this registration fee includes ice skate rental for the duration of the class. There are multiple class times available, Monday through Thursday, at both Tenney and Elver parks.

Participants should keep in mind that these ice skating classes take place outside so it is very important that everyone dress in warm clothing that will allow for flexibility, as well as wearing mittens and hats. For the younger, beginner skaters, helmets and snow pants are suggested.
