The Slater Family Ice Arena and Bowling Green Skating Club have joined resources to create even better skating opportunities for all levels of figure skaters from beginners to competitive skaters.  Programs, membership, and more have been re-designed and updated for an exciting season of skating!

Programming includes on-ice and off-ice classes focused on developing a well rounded skater encompassing the technical and creative sides of skating.

If your skater is new to skating and would like to pursue figure skating, the best place to start is the Learn to Skate (LTS) program to build a foundation of skills first.  The LTS program provides high quality, progressive instruction in basic ice skating skills that give participants a solid foundation upon which they can continue into the various branches of ice sports including figure skating, hockey team play, or a heightened enjoyment of recreation.

Drop-In Sessions

These sessions are designed for practice for anyone from the advanced beginning levels through the advanced competitive levels. Many skaters receive private lessons during these sessions, however lessons are not required in order to skate the sessions.  It is recommended that skaters be working on at least Basic 4 to skate on a session unsupervised by a coach or in a private lesson.  The size limit for all sessions is 25 skaters.

All are offered on a walk-on (first come, first served) basis. To skate, simply sign in and pay at the Newlove Pro Shop immediately prior to the start of a given session.
