Very organized and friendly staff. They really paid attention to my child and helped her with learning the basics (and beyond) of ice skating. She is very excited about it!
Honestly, I couldn't believe we got free classes, free practices and FREE skates! It seemed too good to be true. We are continuing with lessons and my son is improving each week.
It was an incredible experience for our family!
I've told so many people about this program, and fully intend to register my daughter next year (she was only 4 this year, so too young). We have loved the intro to skating, and my son has moved on to the next class and is continuing with lessons. I'm thrilled to have found this program and that he is learning to skate and the technique behind it. Thank you so much for doing this!
The chance for the kids to learn to skate with a small group of kids their own age was far more effective than trying to teach myself. The group sizes were also small enough that every student got one on one time with the teachers.
Very organized. Teachers were great. Really paid attention to the individual needs and each skater. Made it fun!
The free skates are what got me to sign my child up! Such an incredible value and my daughter is beyond excited that she has her very own skates!
The Go Skate! program awoke a new interest in my son. He now loves skating, plans to continue, and even play ice hockey.
The coaches were friendly, patient, and simply outstanding. My son gained self-esteem and interest in a new activity. The free skates were very high quality.
Thank you so much for providing this opportunity for us! I hope my youngest gets to participate in a few years because she loves skating now, too!
