The Winston Heights Mountview Community Association has endorsed a pilot project to bring Ice Tots to our outdoor community rink. The program is offered at indoor arenas and skating rinks in Calgary but this is the first outdoor course.
Ice Tots is a learn to skate program for 3-5 year olds taught in a group format. Each child must be accompanied on the ice by an adult. (The adult should wear skates or non-slip footwear on the ice.)
A qualified instructor with coaching and first aid certification will teach the program, which will consists of 7 weekly 45 minute classes starting at 10:00 a.m. on January 24 at the community rink. We can accommodate up to 10 adult/child pairs. There will be hot chocolate and coffee for participants after each lesson.
Because the Community Association will underwrite the costs of the program, we can offer it free of charge to community association members and for a nominal cost of $15.00 for non-members. Similar indoor programs cost around $60.00 / child.
Preregistration is required and children must have skates and a CSA helmet. If you and your child wish to participate, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with you and your child’s name and whether or not you are a WHMCA member. The first ten people will be enrolled. If we have more interest, we will start a waiting list. If it reaches 6, we will host a second class at 11:00 a.m. We need a minimum of 6 interested parents to offer the program.
Come out and take advantage of this Learn to Skate opportunity for your children.
