Learn-to-Skate Levels:

Snowplow Sam (3-5 years old):

These classes are designed for young beginner skaters to learn and have fun with their peers on the ice. During these classes, skaters will learn the proper technique for falling and getting up, balancing on skates, marching, gliding, and other basic skating skills. All skaters will start on the ice by pushing a bucket; as the class progresses, skaters will be skating on their own in no time! While helmets are not required, they are recommended for this age group.

Basic 1 - 8 (6-18 years old):

These classes are for those skaters above 6 years old. Each class has required skills to learn to progress through the program.

Freestyle/Intro to Figure Skating/Specialized classes:

These classes are for any skater Basic 3 or higher that are interested in figure skating. Classes vary from edges, stroking, jumps, spins, etc. This is a GREAT way to get to try new skating moves and to learn more about the East Alton Skating Academy!

Hockey Skating Skills: (All ages)

This class is for those hockey skaters looking to improved their hockey skating skills. Many skaters do this class as well as the Twin Bridges Learn to Play Program!

Adults:

We offer classes for adults too! Skating for the whole family!! Adult classes can be done during the normal learn to skate hours, or even during a lunch hour!

Ice skating is a great way to stay healthy and fit. The sport teaches coordination, balance, and self-discipline. Our learn to skate classes are a great spot to start.
