SKATING LESSONS

Due to how the holiday dates impact programs this fall and winter, Vivo has changed the layout of programs creating enough time in each program to ensure children’s success! All skating programs have been changed from 8-week sessions to 12-week sessions to allow children more time to train with our instructor. This model allows for higher success rates, and each child will have the advantage of having time to build a strong base of their skills for the next level.

2021/2022 Skate Lessons Information 

  • Masks are required in the facility but can be removed during the activity

Skating Policies

  • All children on the ice are required to wear a CSA-approved helmet. During Parent and Tot lessons, all adults participating in the lesson with their child are required to be confident skaters.
  • Adults are required to wear helmets on the ice.
  • Avoid the following items on the ice:
    • street shoes
    • bike helmets
    • hot beverages
  • To ensure the longevity of your skate blades, ensure you walk on the rubber surfaces and avoid the cement or metal surfaces with your skates as this dulls the blades and affects your skating experience.

HOW TO LACE YOUR SKATES

 

Skating Protocols

  • All skating equipment is cleaned, disinfected and sanitized regularly in accordance with Alberta Health requirements.
  • When you are waiting to skate, physical distancing markers will be in place to ensure your safety.
  • In-person experiences for all classes have been limited to ensure social distancing.
  • Drop-in Experiences – The space you sign up for is the number you would go to within your class. If you book number 2 your station will be set-up for you at number 2.
  • One-way directional flow in and out of our spaces to reduce the risk of accidentally bumping into someone.
  • The number of classes, times and layout of classes has changed to ensure time for proper disinfection.
