Figure Skating and Learn to Skate

The Sportsplex skating department caters to skaters of all ages and levels. We have classes and programs for those just entering the sport and for those that have skated for years. Beginners of all ages can learn the basics in our Learn-to-Skate Program. For experienced figure skaters, the freestyle sessions offer a chance for more dedicated practice and private lessons.
