Ice Skate Lessons



All lessons taught by Lyons local Anya Mullen, a former "Learn to Skate" coach, who figure skated competitively for nearly a decade. 

Beginner Lessons
If your kids are new to skating, this is the class for them!  We will be working on a foundation to help them enjoy skating independently with a focus on balance and coordination. Skills practiced will include standing up from a sitting position, marching, gliding on two feet, wiggling backwards, and snowplow stops. Your kids will be supported through the lessons with personalized coaching from Anya. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear waterproof pants and gloves. Helmets are highly recommended. Masks are required when within 6' of those not in your household. Ice skate rental is included in the price of the class.  Please arrive 15 minutes early to ensure skates are on in time for class.

Intermediate Lessons
For those who are comfortable skating forward on their own, these lessons will provide a fun challenge. We will focus on agility and movement through skills like one-foot glides, swizzles, turns, hops, and stops. Skaters will learn new moves and get to feeling more comfortable as they skate around, both forwards and backwards. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear waterproof pants and gloves. Helmets are highly recommended. Masks are required when within 6' of those not in your household. Ice skate rental is included in the price of the class.  Please arrive 15 minutes early to ensure skates are on in time for class.

Private Skate Lessons for 1-3 people
Private lessons are available for those who are looking for individualized instruction for themselves or their kids.  With one-on-one support, Anya is able to tailor each lesson to any experience level. Or you can schedule a private lesson with your own small group of 2-3. For small groups it is best for participants to be at a similar level.  Adults can choose the area of focus for  their lesson(s). For kids, even those who have never been on skates before, Anya will assess their abilities and help them improve their skating overall. Figure skates (rather than hockey skates) are highly recommended. Times and dates are flexible and will be coordinated directly with the instructor. All private lessons take place during the family skate times listed on the website. Please register online and Anya will reach out to you to schedule your lesson.
 
Ages: all ages
Dates: flexible, coordinate with instructor
Location: LaVern Johnson Park Ice Rink
Fee: $30 for 1 person, $45 for 2 people, $60 for 3 people for 1/2 hour
