Park District offers ice skating, hockey lessons
Rockford Park District wants to help you learn to ice skate, improve your skating skills, or learn to play hockey.
The Learn to Skate and Jr. IceHogs/Learn to Play Hockey programs offer people ages 3-adult of all abilities the opportunity to learn the skills to enjoy ice sports recreation for a lifetime.
Six-week group sessions are offered for beginner, intermediate and advanced skill levels, and meet at Carlson Ice Arena in Loves Park once a week for 30 to 60 minutes, with skates provided; the next sessions begin the week of Feb. 16.
For skaters interested in additional advanced training, private lessons are also available from the professional figure skating and hockey coaching staff of the Park District’s ice facilities.
Registration is under way for skating and hockey programs, and will continue until capacity is reached. Fee assistance for group lessons may be available to those meeting program qualifications.
Registrations are taken online at rockfordparkdistrict.org (click Register Now), by mail, fax or at Customer Service locations in downtown Rockford, or at Carlson Ice Arena, Riverside and Perryville, Loves Park.
