DEAR PARENTS / CAREGIVERS and SKATERS

A big welcome back to our skaters this term and also to our recently joined skaters in the 5 week course. We hope you are loving your time on the ice and inspired by the amazing skating at the recent Winter Olympics!

Please note there will be no classes over Easter Weekend (Sat 31 March, Sun 1 April and Mon 2 April).  Classes will return to normal from Tuesday 3 April.
Please find information for our School Holiday Programme below and also a reminder to book early for Term 2 Skate School.  This is always a very busy term as we head into Winter!

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter break!

Update with iclasspro

We are very excited to announce that due to an update with iclasspro (the system we use for our skate school enrolments) we now have the ability to email you when your child passes a new level, with a skills evaluation update, plus a certificate! So keep an eye on your inbox!

Also, when you log into iclasspro parent portal, on the left hand side menu you can click on  ‘Evaluate’ and have a look at your child’s skills progress.

We are now taking enrolments online for our April School Holiday programme – a great way to keep up with your skills, and even make some new friends during the holidays.

You can enrol online for next term anytime, as we have all term dates added to the classes on the parent portal. If you have forgotten your password, please just click this link, enter your email address, and click ‘forgot password’. You will then receive a temporary password from iclasspro so that you can log in and update your password.

Platinum Hire

Have you thought of upgrading to platinum hire next time you skate?

The benefits of platinum hire are a superior quality of blade, boot and more comfort. These are much easier to balance and have control when developing news skills. They are a good option to use until your are able to purchase your own skates.

$3 per time to hire.
