Private Skating Lessons

In addition to our regular classes and practice times, Sharks Ice offers private Skating & Hockey Lessons from a variety of experienced, well-qualified instructors.

  • Lesson fees DO NOT include the price of admission and/or skate rental.  These fees are payable directly to the rink.
  • Our Coaching Staff operate as Independent Contractors who use our facility to teach their private lessons; therefore, they set their own schedule based on their availability and payment for the lesson is made to them directly.
  • The cost for private lessons varies depending on the instructor and their skill level.  If you have questions regarding private lessons or pricing, please contact Skatng Manager David Hicks at [email protected] for assistance.
