ICE SKATING / YOUTH Ice Skating All Ice Skating classes are held at Edora Pool Ice Center unless otherwise stated. Welcome to the City of Fort Collins ice skating program! Please take a few moments to read over these guidelines. Our purpose is to serve you better and make your experience with the City safe and enjoyable. Thank you for participating in our ice skating program.  Private Skating Instruction Private ice skating instruction is available for all abilities in Figure Skating, Dance, Edges, Style, Choreography, Hockey and Power. Fees vary depending on Instructor. Ice time and skate rental is not included in Instructor fee. Program not discountable. Ice Skating Organization Contacts Adult Hockey Ft. Collins Adult Hockey Assoc. Youth Hockey Northern Co. Youth Hockey Fort Collins Figure Skating Club Ice Skating Club of Fort Collins Womens Hockey Flames/Phoenix/Comets College Hockey Colorado State University High School Hockey High Plains Hockey Parents may observe lessons from the upstairs bleachers. It is distracting for skaters and coaches to have parents at the gate, and it also creates an obstruction for skaters that are entering or exiting the ice. Individuals are not allowed on the ice with their shoes on. However, parents are welcome to skate with their child during the 15-minute practice time; rental skates are available free of charge. Our Instructor-to-student ratio is 1:10 students. Any classes with more than 10 students will include an assistant. Minimum for all classes based on cost efficiency is 5. (Class levels may be combined to meet this minimum.) Skating lesson are 30 minutes in length with a 15-minute practice time, which may be before or after the lesson depending on scheduling. The Instructors have this time in between classes to talk to parents and address their concerns. Free Skate classes are 45 minutes. Please be aware that some levels will need to be repeated to master all the skills. The first day of each lesson is generally termed as level evaluation day. At this time, the Instructors will evaluate all of the participants in their assigned classes to make certain they have been correctly enrolled. If there is a problem, the Instructor may discuss the best course of action with the parent. Students will be moved if there is space available in the appropriate level of class. There are no make-up lessons for missed skating classes. If the class you wish to register for is filled, you may place your name on a paid waiting list. We attempt to accommodate the demand for skating lessons by adding new classes, however they may not be at the same time/day as the waiting list class. Classes that do not meet the minimum may be canceled or combined. If you are unable to attend the last day of classes for testing, please request a progress card on the last day you attend.   Drop-in Ice Skating Activities Senior Coffee Club This program takes place during regular recreational skate sessions and is for older adults interested in social skating.
