Snowplow Sam (3-5 years)

The Snowplow Sam levels are introductory ice skating lessons divided into four progressive levels allowing children with no prior skating experience to build confidence while learning the basic skills of skating.

These ice skating classes are designed to help children five and younger develop the ABCs of movement – Agility, Balance, Coordination and speed. The ABCs are essential for developing fundamental movement skills and physical literacy. All classes will be taught in a safe and positive environment, incorporating fun and games making class time an enjoyable experience for all.
