What to Bring…What to Wear…
We strongly recommend a bike or hockey helmet, gloves and warm clothing.

Q: My child can skate but has never taken lessons. What do I sign him/her up for?
A: All skaters new to lessons must start in Snowplow Sam 1 (ages 3-5) or Basic 1 (ages 6 and up). All groups are formed based on skater’s age and ability level.

Q: What is the Make-Up Policy?

A: There are no make-up classes. If you have any questions or concerns, please email the skating director ONLY at meg261338@aol.com.

Q: I feel my child needs to be moved to another level. How do I know?
A: If there is a child in any of our classes that needs to be moved, the instructor will let the skating director know and we will move the child to the appropriate class. All students are moved at the discretion of the instructor and skating director.

Q: I would like to have more information on private lessons.
A: Private lessons are scheduled through individual instructors and are taught on our freestyle ice sessions. Instructor fees range from coach to coach based on age, teaching experience and skating experience. Lesson fees range from $25 – $40 per half hour. Hatfield Ice charges an ice fee of $4/15 min, $8/30 min, $12/45 min or $16/1 hour. Discount cards are available for 45 minute sessions only. Please call the skating director for more information.
