Richmond Arenas Skate Lessons

The Richmond Arenas Skate Lesson program is designed in conjunction with the Premier Sports Award Program and is intended to provide a fun and safe introduction to ice skating.

Participants are evaluated on their skills at each individual level and may progress to the next step when all skills taught are performed successfully. Each level helps build confidence while introducing the skills of recreational skating. Participants must attend a minimum of seven (7) lessons to receive an evaluation.

It is recommended that all participants wear helmets, long pants and gloves.
