Skating Academy Programs

Welcome to Islanders Iceworks, the premier skating facility on Long Island and home to the New York Islanders!

Islanders Iceworks is proud to offer our 2016-2017 Skating Academy Learn to Skate program. Learn to Skate is a program developed and taught by our world class skating instructors. It is designed for children ages 4-12 and adults ages 18+ to learn the techniques required to be a well rounded skater.

For our younger children ages 2-4, we offer two additional programs, First Steps and Parent/Tot. In the Parent/Tot class, a parent joins the child for a fantastic bonding experience where as First Steps, your child will enter the world of skating through Group Participation. Classes for younger ages focus on the basic skills of skating while older students will fine-tune their skating, stopping and balance.

Jr. Figure Skating Academy is for levels 3 and up. While encourgaging skaters to accelerate their completion of the Basic Skills curriculum, Academy coaches motivate skaters to enhance the quality of their basic skating giving them a strong foundation in fundamental figure skating techniques.

Adult Learn to Skate classes will concentrate on the basic skills required to become an accomplished skater. Islanders Iceworks also offers AM, PM and Saturday Freestyle sessions.

Freestyle provides an opportunity for the advanced skater to practice and perfect their jumps, spins and routines along with other skaters of the same skill level.

Iceworks Skating Academy also conducts annual Winter Holiday Classic Ice Show and Spring Fling Ice Shows where Learn to Skate group participants can show off their newly acquired skills in both individual and group prepared routines.

Private lessons are also available with all of our highly skilled instructors. For more information on all of our sessions please refer to the links below or contact us by phone at (516) 496-2277.
