Classes and Skill levels

Skill Progression

Recommended for skaters to enter at the Tot or Beginner levels to build a good foundation for recreational skating, figure skating or hockey.  Once Basic 3 is passed additional opportunities and classes are available depending on the skater's interest.  Skating twice a week or more is recommended for improved skill acquisition.

For skaters looking to progress at a faster rate try the Booster for Basics class!  A 50-minute class on the Main Ice designed to cover current skills, review skills, and introduce new skills at a faster pace through drills and increased repetition.  Basic 2 - 6 skill levels combined into groups.

Visit the the Figure Skating page for additional class and performance opportunities.

Visit the Hockey page for additional hockey specific classes.  Once your skater is ready to join a hockey team join the Bowling Green Youth Hockey Association.

2018-2019 Season Class Dates and Times

Registration prior to the first day is strongly recommended. Registrations are accepted on a first come, first serve basis until full to ensure a small student:instructor ratio.
