The Winter Learn to Skate Program is designed for kids of all ages who want to learn how to ice skate. Sessions will be 45 minutes on six consecutive Tuesdays, starting October 11. Participants will learn the basics of skating and will gain confidence on their edges. VSA will NOT be providing any gear. Skates and helmets are required, other protective equipment is encouraged (gloves or mittens, shin guards, elbow pads). VSA recommends checking out Play It Again Sports, Riverside Bike & Skate, or Scheels for equipment! Hockey Starter Packs are available at the VSA Pro Shop. These packs do NOT include skates or helmets.
