Ice Skating Lessons 

St. Louis Park Skate School offers the Ice Skating Institute (I.S.I.) WE-Skate program for ages four and up. Each class presents a progression of specific skills that build upon one another. It is not unusual for a student to remain in the same level for a few sessions before mastering the skills needed to move up to the next level. Skaters that desire to progress quickly are encouraged to register for two classes a week.

Helmets (bike or hockey without face mask) are recommended for all beginning skaters and required for tots. Practice ice on the day of class is available for registered skaters and the parents of tot class participants. Class assignments are not guaranteed. Questions? Contact the skating director at

7-week session: $78 per skater (resident) / $86 (non-resident)
*Reduced fee: Team Skate and Moves, Power, Edges
