Welcome to the wonderful world of ice skating at the BGSU Ice Arena!  From Figure Skating and Youth Hockey to simply learning the basics for the first time, there is a program designed for you!  Programs transition from basic instruction to joining local organizations focused on developing the ice sport of your choice!  The Ice Arena, along with local skating organizations; the Bowling Green Skate Club and the Bowling Green Youth Hockey Association, offer a full range of skating opportunities.

Learn to Skate USA (formerly U.S. Figure Skating Basic Skills) is the national curriculum sponsored by U.S. Figure Skating and USA Hockey to introduce and instruct skating at the beginning levels to build a strong foundation.  Curriculum and skill levels have been revised and updated under the new Learn to Skate USA program.  Class offerings reflect the new curriculum developed under Learn to Skate USA.
