Ice Skating Students

Preparing for Your Lesson

We recommend you dress in warm, comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely.  Dress in layers, so as you warm up, you can remove your top layers and still stay comfortable.  Helmets are highly recommended for children 6 and under as well as first-time adults.  Be sure to arrive early to each class to give yourself plenty of time to get your skates on and meet your teacher a few minutes before the class starts.

*In the event any LTS series is postponed or the ice facilities are temporarily shut down due to COVID-19 by state or local mandate/health directives, the classes will be paused and will resume when such restrictions are lifted. Any missed classes shall be added to the series so that all skaters will get the full number of classes originally anticipated. Schedule is subject to change.
