As one of the largest recreational skating school programs in the country, the San Diego Ice Arena skating school program offers a welcoming, fun, and exciting way to teach toddlers, teens, and adults the artistry of ice skating.
Many skaters begin in a “starter” level class, where they are introduced to skating basics and how to safely navigate around the ice arena in confidence. After completing the introductory starter class, most skaters feel that skating around the local rink is a breeze.
During each twelve week semester, skaters of all ages and levels work receive individualized attention from our world class coaching staff. From tiny toddlers taking their first steps on the ice to high-level extreme power stroking, from adult, dance, and group performance classes, skaters of all skill levels and ages are sure to find a class that fits their needs.
