Private skating lessons are available at Blazers Ice Centre! Private lessons are taught by professional coaches who are qualified to teach every level from beginner recreational to advanced competitive.
ABOUT PRIVATE LESSONS
Private lessons provide one-on-one instruction with a coach who will teach skating skills beyond the basics a skater has learned in Learn to Skate. Skaters who started in the Learn to Skate program may choose private lessons in order to learn more advanced skills for figure skating or hockey. Blazers coaches are experts at teaching skaters of all ages and skill levels, designing programming to meet the needs of the individual skater, and helping each athlete compete at the appropriate / desired level.
HOW DO I FIND A COACH?
View the coaching bulletin board in our lobby, or the Coaches page on our site. Observe our coaching staff at work. Watch them teach, or speak to them directly.

Lessons are contracted with the coach and paid directly. Ice time is separate from coaching fees, and must be paid for upon entry or booked online in advance (training ice).

HOW MUCH WILL PRIVATE LESSONS COST?
Private Lessons vary in price, depending on the instructor and the length of the lesson. When scheduling a lesson with an instructor, please inquire. Lesson Fees are traditionally paid at the end of each lesson, or may be billed by the instructor at a regular periodic interval. Please make payment arrangements with your coach in advance.
PRIVATE LESSON GUIDELINES
Try to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your lesson. Put your skates on and warm up before your lesson begins.
Maintain regular contact with your instructor – make sure you have their home number or cell number, as well as their e-mail address. They are responsible for their own schedules, as independent contractors, and are not always at the ice arena.
If for some reason, you are not able to make your private lesson, please contact your instructor directly, with as much notice as possible.
