A frequently asked question is “Are lessons included with registration?” No, private lessons are arranged by contacting one or more of the coaches at the numbers provided on the coaches list. Lessons should be scheduled during the ice sessions that you register for; your coach needs to have availability during those sessions. Coaches are paid directly; not at the the Ice Arena office.
