If you’d like to learn to skate, now is the time to visit Harbourfront Centre’s Natrel Rink. This winter, skaters of all ages and abilities are invited to participate in one of over 100 “Learn to Skate” classes taught by experienced instructors. Each Learn to Skate class is designed specifically to suit each student’s skill level, from first-time skaters to those looking to improve their skating technique. Small class sizes also ensure that students learn to skate in a fun, safe and comfortable environment.
The Natrel Rink is also offering new activities this year, including special teen and women-only classes, along with drop-in clinics, romantic “date skates”, private lessons and group lessons. Harbourfront Centre will also offer its popular parent and tot, Kinderskate, children and adult lessons. Prices for classes range from $45 to $95.
For those who have already perfected their double axels, Harbourfront Centre offers free daily skating from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., Sunday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday. Skate and helmet rentals, lockers and sharpening services are also available.
The Natrel Rink is open until March Break (weather permitting) and is fully supervised by Harbourfront Centre’s rink marshal. All Learn to Skate participants are required to wear Canadian Standards Association-approved hockey helmets. Classes cancelled due to weather conditions will be rescheduled.
Harbourfront Centre and the Natrel Rink are both located at 235 Queens Quay West.
