Frequently Asked Questions:

WHAT DO I NEED TO BE READY FOR MY FIRST LESSON?

Arrive at the rink 30 mins before class to fill out paperwork, get sized for skates, lace-up and be ready for the pre-class warm-up. Use the restroom before class. We suggest that skaters bring warm clothing. Helmets (not provided) are necessary for beginners at levels Snowplow 1 through Basic 2. We request that parents watch from the stands or the concessions area.

IF I MISS A CLASS DO I GET A REFUND OR MAKE-UP CLASS?

PBIW does not offer refunds for the Skate School program, however, if you miss a class during your 8-week session, we do allow for ONE makeup class per skater.
