Your child’s safety is our #1 priority. Each session, all skating levels are tested to measure each skater’s ability and determine his or her progression. This system provides a measurement for everyone from beginners to the most advanced, whether recreational or competitive skaters. Since testing is required in order to advance to the next level, registration for Figure Skating and Hockey Classes is taken only in person at Oakton Ice Arena.
Registration takes place twice each year. Registration for the Fall Session is held in early spring, based on space availability and on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here for preschool registration information.
