A Guide to Private Lessons and Finding Your First Coach
Are you interested in working with a private instructor? Do you have questions on how to find the right coach for your skater? This site has our more frequently asked questions—and answers!
You may want to work with a private instructor if:
- Your skater wants individual attention and coaching
- Your skater wants to improve at a faster rate
- Your skater needs extra help to pass a level in “Learn to Skate”
- Your skater wants to participate in the ice show or a basic skills competition
How to Get Set Up with a Private Instructor:
Contact your “Learn to Skate” instructor or skating director, Ashley Carlson (firstname.lastname@example.org), to be placed with an instructor. Talk with your instructor about your skaters goals and explanations for lessons; then, set up a time for a 15, 30, 45 or 60 minute lesson with your private instructor.
Policies and Procedures
Lessons are available every Sunday at noon, or at any available public session at the Arrington Ice Arena. Lessons must be paid for with your instructor before taking the ice.
Cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to the scheduled lesson. You may be charged for the missed lesson if you do not give 24 hours advanced notice.
