COACHES & PRIVATE LESSONS

Our instructors are available for private and semi-private lessons. You can also take private lessons as a "booster lesson" to improve your skating skills or to train for competitions! All of our coaches are members of U.S Figure Skating, the Professional Skaters Association and USA Hockey. Because our athlete's mental and physical safety is paramount to us, each coach has passed a comprehensive background check through the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI) and are SafeSport certified through the U.S Olympic Committee.

You are welcome to come and observe our instructors on the ice at any time. You may approach an instructor directly to arrange a lesson, or click their name below to send an email. If you are not sure which coach which is right for you, please fill out the Private Lesson Request below and our Director of Figure Skating will determine the best fit for you. Please note that due to a high volume of requests, Private Lesson Requests may take up to 2+ weeks to schedule a lesson with a professional coach - if you are looking for a lesson as soon as possible, we recommend a Drop-In Private Lesson.


All of our instructors are independent contractors. Once an instructor has been selected, all lesson scheduling and cancellations must be handled directly with the instructor. Pines Ice Arena is not responsible for scheduling private lessons. The lesson cost does not include the price of ice time/admission or skate rental. Payment for the private lesson must be made in the Skate School at Pines Ice Arena. You will receive a lesson ticket that is to be given to the instructor prior to the lesson.

Lesson fees range from $35-$60 per half hour. Ice time varies based on session.
