Learn to Skate

Colorado College Skating School

Snow Plow Skating w Kid

Skating is a lot of fun, but it can also be frustrating for newcomers without much experience. That's why we recommend joining a learn to skate program that will make the learning process fun and enjoyable. Skating lessons teach the proper skills and techniques needed to skate, while also providing skaters with good fundamental skills that they build upon as they learn figure skating, hockey, or speed skating. Regardless of your skating goals, a learn to skate program is a great place to start the journey.
