Learn to skate at the Ice Sports Forum.  We offer classes of all types.

Learn how to ice skate, or learn how to play Ice Hockey!

The Ice Sports Forum Skating School is a member of the Ice Skating Institute (ISI). We model our Skating School program from this nationally recognized recreational based figure skating program. Each class level teaches skills that continually build upon the skills that were achieved in the previous level.

It is very important to learn the basic skills so that a skater has a strong foundation to keep progressing forward. A successful completion of each class level may take more than one 8-week session.

The ISI has membership opportunity which enables a beginning skater to compete in local and national competitions, performs in recitals and holiday shows, test for badges and receive a membership card and skating magazines. Membership for ISI and be done at the front kiosk. Please email Tommy Brannen at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  for more information.

Professional Instructors

The instructors at the Ice Sports Forum Skating Academy are available for private as well as group lessons. All of our staff instructors are highly qualified and are certified with the ISI or PSA.   Once skaters have passed Freestyle 1, private instruction is encouraged to enhance development. Training ice time is available for skaters to have private lessons for a separate fee.
