– 10 session pack pass – With no expiration, these ten passes can be used during any learn to skate session. A ten session pack pass is $190.00.
– 30 day unlimited pass – This pass allows your skater to attend as many sessions as you wish in a 30 day period. A 30 day unlimited pass is $110.00.

Thank you for helping my son today with his very first skating lesson, and for helping me getting him ready with the paperwork and skates. He had a great time and I’m amazed how much he learned already. ~M.L.


You and the LTS staff are doing a wonderful job keeping the parents informed. I also wanted to express my appreciation for how wonderful all the skating staff are on the ice-ready to work with the kids, smiling, and very polite.  I’m very impressed and glad we found something that Noah truly enjoys doing. Sincerely, K.M.


Thank you so much! If I understand correctly, I can purchase 10 lessons at a time, to be used anytime in the season.  My girls would progress based on how quickly they learn each new skill.  So if I bought 20 classes each, I could potentially bring them in 2 days a week for 10 weeks or once a week for 20 weeks, or any combination thereof.

You’re right, that is THE most flexible and unique instructional opportunity.  I’m very impressed! ~M.S.


Wow, I have to say you are amazing! ~L.S.
