Tot Stars Skate and Create

Tot Stars Skate and Create is a BRAND new program at Ice Land for preschool age children, created by our skating director Jenn! Class consists of a half hour of on ice 'instructional' time including game play, songs, marker play and light skill work, a half hour of optional play and practice time on the ice and a half hour of craft and story time off the ice correlating to the on ice activities! Tot Stars comes to Ice Land this September on Wednesday mornings at 10a! We are very excited to bring this program to the rink and to all of you! 

Tot Stars is not a Learn-to-Skate class. Basic skating skills will be learned throughout class, but it isn't a Learn-to-Skate class. If you are looking for a LTS class, check out our Totsicles classes!

Important Information

* Sessions run continuously every 5 weeks on Wednesday mornings. There are times due to holidays, tournaments, etc. that we have a week scheduled off. Be sure to check this page for current dates.

* Feel free to join after the session has already started - we would love to have you! 

* Not ready to commit? Trial classes are allowed. ($30 per trial class, per skater.) Please check in at the window to register for a trial class. 

* Don't forget your gloves/mittens and helmets! (Not provided by the rink.) Helmets are MANDATORY for Tot Stars!

* Dress warmly, in layers. Snow pants are recommended as we do spend time sitting on the ice for activities! Another reason not to forget your gloves/mittens!

* Please allow yourself enough time to check in and get your skates on. Classes will not be extended due to missed class time. Upon arrival at the rink each week, please get your name badge from the front table. Badges are required for class. There are no make-up classes for Tot Stars.

* Once you have your child's skates on and tied securely to the top, using all of the hooks in a crisscross pattern, head into the rink. If it is your class time, proceed to the far door and we will get all kids on the ice from there. If your child's class hasn't started but Tot Stars has already begun, you may practice on the other side of the cones until your class begins. Remember, practice is of utmost importance! 

* Please note, coaches are not responsible for holding up skaters during class. Skaters are expected to try to stand on their own.


* Tot Stars Skate and Create is $129 per 5 week session.
* Parents may skate with their Tot Stars for an extra $5 per day.
* Trial classes are $30.
