Thanks to our Synthetic ice, this program enables Children/Teens & Adults to learn the basics skating skills without the help of a Skate Aid (some children might need parental assistance). ** 3 years old to Adults.

We at Laurie’s Learn to Skate think our Synthetic Ice surface is the best surface on which to start beginner skaters. It takes away the need for any skate aids, or a parent’s hand. Students feel confident because they can do it by themselves and in doing so, find it fun and relaxing. Once they feel they can accomplish the art of skating, they will exceed your expectations. We have seen amazing results in our beginner skaters since we installed the surface at our Pickering location in January 2000. Our rink operates 6 days a week, allowing us to accommodate working parent’s busy schedules.  I have been running programs for children since 1984.

I have never seen as great a change in the beginners as I have with this surface. Before we had the Synthetic Ice, we ran a Parent and Tot program on the real ice. Sometimes we would spend 5 of the 10 weeks just getting the children to stand alone, without assistance. On the Synthetic Ice, they will learn how to get up, skate forward, backwards, gliding and stopping. This is usually done within the first 3 lessons and all without a skate aid or parental assistance. Incorporating practice on the real ice as much as possible will also aid in their progress.  Our student / teacher ratio is 6 to 2. We feel this gives skaters more time with the instructor. This is a  30 minute class which consists of 20 minutes of lesson and 10 minutes of free skate at the end of each class.
