Hunt Arena Skate School

It is the goal of the Hunt Arena Skate School (HASS) to provide a quality learning experience in a supportive environment for all participants. Skaters will achieve their personal goals while having fun and learning the appropriate elements established by the Ice Skating Institute. All instructors are qualified instructors and students at UW-River Falls. 

We offer learn-to-skate classes, freestyle classes (for figure skaters who have passed delta), an annual ice show, and pro's ice (for figure skaters taking private lessons).

How to get the most out of Hunt Arena Skate School:

  • Classes will start promptly at the scheduled time. Be ready to skate at your lesson time.
  • Enter and leave the ice by skating near the boards rather than cutting across the ice.
  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to get your skates on in time for your class and to receive any new information that you might need for the lesson.
  • Dress so you are comfortable and warm, but without a lot of bulk.
  • The use of a hockey or bicycle helmet is strongly encouraged.
  • Having skates that are sharp is as important as a good pair of skates.  Skate sharpening and skate rental are available for a small fee.
  • PARENTS: Please make sure your skaters understand what is expected of them so everyone involved will have a great skating experience.
    • Skater’s Expectations
      • Ready each week to remain engaged in a 30-minute class. (Many 3-year-old skaters are ready to skate, some are not quite there yet. We ask parents to use their best judgement when registering.)
      • Be on time.
      • Bring a positive attitude.
      • Listen to your instructor.
      • Encourage your fellow skaters.
      • Work hard.
      • Have Fun!
    • At Hunt Arena Skating School, our coaches and staff will do our best to redirect and guide skaters within class to participate in a safe and fun way. To ensure that safety is the top priority and that all skaters are able to enjoy their class environment, the following steps will be taken if a skater's behavior is unsafe or significantly distracting:
      • Verbal Warning
      • Player’s Box (time out) or make them coach’s buddy
      • Remove the skater from the ice for that day and meet with parents
  • Want to practice outside of class? Come to open skate! Your Hunt Arena Skating School name tag gets you in for FREE!
