Register online for skating lessons and sessions

We're currently offering skating lessons only at Trout Lake and Killarney ice rinks. We're unable to offer beginner skating lessons (Child level 1 and Preschool level 1 and 2) at this time.

Registration for public skating sessions opens three days in advance, and closes 30 minutes before the session starts.

Skating sessions are 45 minutes or one-hour long. Skaters 7 years and younger must be accompanied on the ice by a parent or guardian over the age of 16 years.

Skate and helmet rentals are available (except for Stick and Puck sessions and drop-in figure skating). Sticks, pucks, and rings will not be available but you may bring your own. Other skate aids are limited.
