Sanford, Winter 2023 Skating Skills for Kids (Introduction and Beginner Levels)

3 & 4 years

This class is for both brand new skaters (children ages 3 & 4 who are not confident with their balance on the ice), and beginner level skaters (children who are able to stand and move forward independently on the ice). Any child who is 3 or 4 year old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian with basic skating ability. Volunteers are encouraged to be on the ice. 

Instructors will separate the group according to skill level. New skaters will focus on their balance, posture, falling down and getting up, turning and jumping on the spot and gliding on two feet! Beginners with some experience on the ice will learn to glide forward, skate backwards, and learn stopping techniques.

Age: Participant must be 3 years old by the beginning of the course.

Equipment: Please bring skates and appropriate clothing to stay warm on the ice (ski pants, jacket, mitts or gloves).  A CSA (Canadian Standards Association) approved helmet is required for both parent and the child.
