Online Staff Report
The Rockford Park District believes you’re never too old to try something new, or work on improving a leisure skill you loved in the past.
Adults ages 17 and older are invited to sign up for figure skating classes and join others for socializing, motivation and challenge in a fun atmosphere where beginning- to advanced-level participants are welcome.
Six-week group sessions meet at Carlson Ice Arena in Loves Park once a week for 45 minutes, with skates provided; the next sessions begin Feb. 2 and March 16, for $50 per session ($55 non-resident).
Sessions consist of 15 minutes of practice time, followed by a 30-minute lesson by the Park District’s professional figure skating staff, who also offer private lessons for skaters interested in additional advanced training..
Registration is under way, and will continue until capacity is reached. Registrations are taken online at www.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.
