Our Lessons range from Tots and Beginners to Intermediate and Advanced skaters looking to learn or perfect their skills on the ice. Lessons start off teaching students skating basics and progress with each class level.

Classes meet twice a week for three weeks. The lesson fee includes ice skate rental and open skate for the day of the lesson.  Participants can use their own skates. They must wear a helmet; bike helmets are acceptable or they can rent one at the rink for free. Space is limited, we like to keep classes smaller for better instruction. Makeup days for lessons will be held at the end of the session and only one makeup day is guaranteed.

To register call Valpo Parks at 219-462-5144 or sign up on the website at ValpoParks.org. Phone registrations accepted with debit or credit card. Payment is due at the time of registration and is non-refundable.

Tots/parents will learn how to properly put on skates, sit and stand in skates, march in place, march forward, and glide on the ice. Our goal is to make Tots feel comfortable on the ice and have fun ice skating! Parents are encouraged to skate if they are confident on the ice.
