Skate Class Policies


Introduction to Roller Skating

About: Our introductory class is a progressive, 4-week course focusing on the development of basic skating skills and safe skating practices. Classes take place on specified Saturdays between 12 and 1 PM. The Intro Program is divided into four levels: Youth I/II, Adult I/II, Youth III, and Adult III. Youth courses are for skaters 15 and younger. Adult courses are for 16 and over. To enroll in the Level III class you must have successfully completed the Level I/II class or have instructor permission. While all class levels share the skating floor during instructional time, each level will work with its own dedicated USA Roller Sports certified coach.

Course Dates: At the time you purchase your course admission, you will select the 1st week of your 4-week course. Some 4-week courses have break-weeks due to holidays. 2022/2023 course dates are:

  • OCT 8-29
  • NOV 5-DEC 3 (no class 11/26)
  • DEC 10-JAN 14 (no class 12/24 or 12/31)

Class Time: When registering for a Level I/II class, you will choose from 12-12:25 PM or 12:30-12:55 PM for your section timeslot. You must attend the same timeslot each week. Adult Level III starts weekly at 12 PM and Youth Level III starts weekly at 12:30 PM. Skaters registered for the 12-12:25 PM section must clear the main skating floor from 12:30-1 PM, but may practice on the side floors while waiting for the Open Skate Session to begin. Skaters registered for the 12:30 timeslot may arrive at 12 PM and warm-up on the side floors until their section begins, but may not enter the main floor until 12:30 PM. Please be sure to arrive a minimum of 10 minutes before the start of your timeslot to allow time to get your skates on and be ready for class to begin.
