Do you want to Learn to Skate? You're in the right place!

Welcome to the Vacaville Ice Sports "Learn to Skate" program. We offer skating lessons for ALL ages & abilities, from tiny tots to adults. Our Skating Academy is designed to take a student step by step from very basic skating skills to an advanced competitive level. In other words, we have something for everyone on the ice!

Group lessons are taught by our highly qualified coaching staff with an excellent student-teacher ratio. Skate rental is included for every session. All Skating Academy students should wear warm clothing, jackets, gloves & long pants that allow movement. In addition, helmets are strongly encouraged, especially for children under 6 years old. We do not provide helmets so make sure to bring your own. A simple bike helmet is perfect!
