Each season, Sycamore Ice Skating Club offers four sessions of group instruction. Our Saturday classes are for all ages and levels, while our Wednesday classes are specifically for adults, at least 18 years old.

When you enroll for classes, you are signing up for one hour of skating each week, which includes a 30-minute lesson and a 30-minute practice. Depending on the level, skaters may have the class first and then a practice.

All skaters begin in Snowplow Sam if they are 3-5 years old or Basic 1 if they are at least 5 years old.

We ask parents and guests to watch their skaters from the bleachers. Please do not stand in the hockey boxes or doorways, so skaters can focus during their lessons.

Typical class times:
12:30 to 1 p.m. on Saturdays: Snowplow Sam 1 through Basic 3
1 to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays: Basic 4+
*Class times may vary depending on the number of skaters enrolled in each level.
