Classes and Skill levels

Skill Progression

It is recommended for skaters to enter Learn to Skate at the Tot or Beginner levels to build a good foundation for recreational skating, figure skating or hockey at age three or above.  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. Join the Bowling Green Skate Club for additional figure skating activities. 

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.

New for the 2019-2020 season!

In an effort to encourage early registrations there will be two Registration Fees for all classes.

  • An Early Registration Fee - All Registration Fees will stay the same amount as the prior season when completed before the first day of a class.
  • Day Of or After Registration Fee - Any registrations completed the first day of a class or after will be increased by $10.00.

Early registration is extremely beneficial to allow the skaters and coaches the best opportunity to maximize their lesson time.
