Learn to Skate USA Program

Due to the continuation of the “Stay at Home” order updated by Governor Wolf, The Philadelphia Skating Club will remain closed, until further notice.

The skating club is working tirelessly to maintain the facility and the ice during this stay at home order, with the intent to re-open as soon as the Governor gives the okay.  At that time, you will be notified with the new start date for the Spring Learn to Skate program.

We hope that you and your family stay well during this time, and we will be in touch with more information as we receive updates from local and state government.

Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.

Whether you are looking to introduce your children to the ice or want to add skating to your own fitness routine, we have something for you!

Our group lessons are structured to teach beginners and more advanced skaters in separate classes. Group instruction includes a thirty-minute class, thirty minute practice the same day, skate rental and a certificate upon course completion.
