General Learn To Skate Information

Learn to Ice Skate 

The Cooler Skating Academy's LEARN TO ICE SKATE program in ATLANTA runs year round with sessions 8 weeks in length (shorter when adjusted due to holidays or special events).  We offer group classes according to the US Figure Skating Learn to Skate  Program which is a progressive method to teach the fundamentals of skating in a fun and challenging way. Our staff of professional skating instructors, all members of PSA (Professional Skaters Association) and US Figure Skating is ready to help you and your family acquire good skating skills.

What to Wear:
Comfortable, warm clothing: long pants (sweat suits), gloves or mittens, a helmet or other protective head gear, thin socks (high enough to cover the top of skating boots).

Make Up Classes:
A list with possible make up classes for each semester will be posted at the rink and on this page.

YOU CAN MAKE UP 2 CLASSES DURING A SEMESTER, missed classes DO NOT carry over to the next semester. No make-ups during the first week, please! To make up a missed class, check the class schedule for the current semester on the left, find the level for your skater, come to The Cooler and tell Herbert that you are doing a make-up. NO reservations necessary!

Evaluations will be made during the last two weeks of each semester, recommendations for re-registration will be handed out and online registration for advanced levels will be open at this time.

Refunds will only be available until the end of the first week of class. (All refunds are subject to a $30 administration fee). In house credits are always available.

Private Lessons:
Private Lessons can supplement the group classes and are given on Public Session ice times for beginning skaters. Please see the Public Session Schedule for times. For information on coaches available for private lessons go to FIGURE SKATING and COACHING STAFF. Or just talk to your class coach to see if she/he is available for lessons.
