“The skate program was AMAZING! The instructors were super friendly, easygoing and very well trained. They made every child feel empowered and proud of themselves. Whenever I saw a child struggling, the staff were so great– supporting the child who was having a rough time with a lot of compassion and enthusiasm that helped get them excited to skate. My son had a blast – he had a permanent smile on his face the whole time and he now wants to be a hockey player!”
