Learn to Skate   


Bridgeport Skating Club’s Learn to Skate program provides affordable skating instruction for children and adults alike! Skaters will learn in a fun and exciting way the needed basic skills to enjoy all aspects of skating whether it is for figure skating, youth hockey or just for fun.

Our Learn to Skate programs are run under the direction of Bridgeport Skating Club’s professional coaching staff with assistance provided by Volunteer Instructors to reinforce skating skills.  

Registration for the 8-week sessions is ongoing for classes running Sunday mornings from 11:30 to 12:30 at the Wonderland of Ice.


LEARN TO SKATE:  Skaters progress through the “Basic Eights”, the learn-to-skate program designed by US Figure Skating, the governing body of figure skating.


SNOWPLOW SAM:    Designed for children six and under to help tots develop preliminary coordination and strength necessary to maneuver on skates with an emphasis on fun.    

 ADULT:    Designed for recreational skaters 18+ seeking a fun fitness activity or who may be returning to the sport after years of the ice.  When possible, the adult program runs at the same time as the Snowplow Sam classes, making it easier for parents to take lessons while their children are with their instructors.
