Private Lessons

Private lessons are available for all ages and abilities. Some students find that individual instruction is the best way to fine tune their skating skills. You can choose to use private lessons to supplement your Learn to Skate Lesson. Private Lesson information is available by contacting our Figure Skating Director, Janice Forbes.

Private Lesson fees are paid directly to the instructor and do not include ice time or skate rental. Ice time is paid directly to Sprinker Recreation Center prior to the start of the session.
