The Park District offers ice skating instruction for beginners of all ages, from 3 to adults. Classes are divided up by skill and often blended when learning skills. These classes operate in 7 to 10 week sessions depending on the season. Ice skates can be rented for lessons at the facility. Helmets are required for the two beginner classes and highly recommended in subsequent levels.
