FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I register for classes at any time? Yes, you may register at any time.
We do require that you “Save A Spot” to secure a place in class. We accept “Save A Spot” reservations each week until Wednesday at noon. See above for link. If you reserve a spot after the cut off on Wednesday, there is a possibility you will not be placed in a class until the following week. In order to ensure that all members receive quality instruction, we limit group lesson class sizes. Because of this, there may be times when some group class offerings are filled to capacity.
Again, if we do not have a class spot for you, you will be invited to skate as our guest on the practice ice the first week. We will adjust classes for the next week to accommodate you while maintaining our desired class ratios.
What happens if I register in the middle of a session? If you register in the middle of a session, we can prorate the fees.
