Learn to Skate USA Program

ABOUT US

The Ice Warriors Skating Academy offers figure skating and hockey group lessons from the Learn to Skate USA curriculum for skaters of ages 3 to adult and for all abilities. Learn to Skate USA is sanctioned by US Figure Skating and USA Hockey. Our home rink is the Pepsi Ice Arena located off of North Rancho Drive and West Carey Avenue.

Classes have multiple levels, for example, a Basic 1-2 class has all skills from Basic 1 and some from Basic 2. Classes with 3 or less students might be combined with another class and larger classes are sometimes split. Our goal is for students to learn at their own pace and advance when they are ready. Sign up for our Tuesday and/or Sunday classes today! Everyone has to start somewhere, and it’s a great time to start with us at Pepsi Ice Arena!

Skaters are required to have skates, gloves and a helmet (bicycle or hockey) if enrolled in any Basic 1-2 class  and Hockey Warriors Edge class.  Full hockey gear is required to participate in the Hockey Warriors Edge classes. Each 8 week session is prorated, and the price change happens on Wednesday each week. Registration will close after completion of week 4. There’s no classes on these holidays: New Years, President’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

It costs $125 for eight 30 minute classes. Choose from Snowplow Sam, Basic Skills, Figure Skating Warriors Edge classes or the Hockey Warriors Edge class.  Pricing includes skate rental. Figure Skating Warriors Edge FreeSkate classes cost $150 for eight 1 hour classes.

Sometimes sessions will be 6 weeks instead of 8 depending on when holidays happen & all classes will be $125. In this case, the first 4 classes will be 30 minutes, and the last 2 classes will be 1 hour. FreeSkate classes will remain 1 hour, but discounted to $125 due to being 6 weeks instead of 8 weeks.

You can also make a donation to The Ice Warriors Skating Academy to help us with our upcoming exhibition at Pepsi Ice Arena. We’re excited to give skaters the opportunity to experience participating in an exhibition. The Christmas Holiday show was always a great success through the previous figure skating club, and we're proud to announce that our organization is hosting an exhibition this summer! Please consider donating!
