Learn to Skate Program


The City of North Olmsted works in association with U.S. Figure Skating to create an innovative and fun Learn to Skate program.  This fun, challenging and rewarding program is used nationally as the best beginning ice skating program available.  This program serves the needs of both the recreational and the competitive skater, and is also the official Learn to Skate program of USA Hockey.  Our top-notch instructors are trained in the latest teaching techniques.  This is the only Learn to Skate program of its kind in the Greater Cleveland Area.  We not only offer innovative instruction that is both informative and motivational. We also include many extras, such as extended lesson time, achievement patches to mark a student's progress, an end of session party where skaters will be presented with their achievement patches, and a Basic Skills record book for students to use to monitor their individual progress. 

Ice Rink Schedules and Information


US Figure Skating requires that each Learn to Skate Student pay an annual membership fee of $12.00.  This fee covers US Figure Skating materials, badges, books and insurance.  This fee is effective from September 1 – August 31. For more information on this fee please see a member of the Learn to Skate staff.


The learn to skate schedule is broken down into six week sessions.  Days and times of classes for each session can be found on flyers at the rec center or on this web site.
