Ice Skating Lessons

Learn to skate, swizzle, slalom, and (perhaps  most importantly) stop on skates. Our instructors will help you develop confidence as you navigate the ice. Private, semi-private, and group lessons are available for all Rec Well members and for their household dependents. Skate rental is included in each lesson.
