Policies & Procedures

FIRST DAY OF CLASS

  • Please go to the skate rental counter located at the front entrance of the lobby to get your rental skates.
  • Please meet your instructor by the ice surface. Instructors will stand next to signs stating CLASS NAME.
  • Please leave your skater with instructor and return to the lobby for the first 5 minutes of class to allow for   adequate room for an off-ice lesson. Once skaters are on the ice, all spectators are welcome to re-enter the  ice surface area.
  • To keep all students with other participants that are most similar in age and skill level, Chiller instructors will evaluate all students during the first class and move skaters to and from classes to make the most appropriate groupings.

FOR NEW SKATERS

  • Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to fit skates and familiarize yourself with the facility.
  • Please utilize the beginner figure skates which are easier to learn in. Only once a skater can confidently skate and glide do we recommend switching to hockey skates.
  • Practice walking, sitting on the floor and standing up for 5 minutes before taking the ice.
  • Make sure that laces are tied securely and tucked in.
