ICE MICE UPDATED FOR 2019-2020
(Ages 3 - 6 years)
ICE MICE is designed to help preschool-age children develop the preliminary coordination and strength necessary to maneuver on skates. By the end of this program, skaters should feel comfortable being on skates, and be prepared to move on to Learn to Skate, Learn to Skate for Hockey Players or Hockey Development.
ICE MICE follows the US Figure Skating Association & USA Hockey guidelines. We incorporate lots of fun and games. Classes are divided by ability, and each child progresses at his or her own rate. It is recommended that your child be at least three years old by the start of class to enroll. (Due to the young age of the children, parent or guardian must remain at the rink for entire class time.)
There are no make-ups due to Ridgefield school snow day cancellations. Knee pads, elbow pads, hockey helmet with face mask & gloves required! Winter Garden has skates & Hockey helmets for participants to use each class. We recommend that you purchase your own elbow & knee pads. The Pro Shop has all the equipment your need to get started and answer any questions about the equipment you may have.
