Skate with US classes
Skate with US classes offer your skater the opportunity to work on developing skills for ice sports from figure skating to ice hockey as well as recreational skating.
To register, print a registration form above
or scroll down and fill out the online form.
Our classes include a 30 minute group skill lesson and 15 minutes of practice time. There are classes available for all ages (3 year olds through adults) and skill levels. Coaches will evaluate the skaters throughout the Session, testing on the 6th week. Some skaters need longer at each level to master the skills, especially younger ones. Some may advance to higher level within the same Session. Our goal is to advance skaters at their own pace, but to also promote skaters who are capable of skating in higher levels.
All Sessions take place at Metro Ice sport Facility: 5100 NW 72ndSt, Urbandale, IA 50322
