Mice on Ice Info

Mice on Ice is our skating instruction program for children ages 3-5, combining pre-school environment with the US Figure Skating Snowplow Sam curriculum. Using games, songs, toys and our imaginations, we will encourage students to gain confidence and independence as they learn basic skating skills. During our 30-minute class, we discuss safe ways to sit, stand, and move on the ice. As student's progress and pass Mice I, they will be eligible to continue to more advanced skills in the Mice II class. At the completion of both class levels, student will be well-prepared to join either the Polar Ice House Rink Rats or Learn to Skate programs.

Skill Breakdown:

Mice I: falling down, standing on ice, marching on ice, two foot glides, stand still dips

Mice II: forward swizzles, rocking horse, moving dips, backward wiggles, two foot hop, one foot glides

All new and returning students at any skill level welcome!!
