Parents/guardians of Inwood Skate School students 12 years and younger must stay in the Ice Arena building for the duration of class.


Skate rental is available through Legacy Sports. Figure skates are recommended for beginners but are not required. Double blade skates are not permitted. Learn to Skate class participants should arrive 10-15 minutes before class to put on skates and should wear long sleeves and pants, as well as gloves or mittens. Classes meet in the lobby before going to the ice.


For the benefit of all participants, the level system must be followed and skaters must demonstrate to staff mastery of the skills in each level before advancing. Progress reports will be given to all skaters at the end of each session. Skaters transferring from other skate schools will be evaluated by our Skate School staff for proper level placement.


Classes with 3 skaters or less may be combined with other levels or cancelled. Refunds may be requested, but are not guaranteed, and are subject to a $5 administration fee and approval from management. To request a refund, see the front desk for a Credit Request Form. Skaters are allowed 2 make-ups each session, and skaters must schedule make-ups in advance at the Skate School Information table located in the lobby during Skate School classes. No make-ups will be allowed during the last week of classes due to testing. Late registrations may be taken with approval of the Skate School Supervisor.
