Individual Skating and Private Lessons


Private Lessons are given by an individual coach to a skater. The private ice season fee is paid to EGF Parks and Rec. This fee is in addition to the cost of each lesson paid to your private coach. If you choose to hire a private coach, they will assign a practice time for you each week to improve your Basic Skills, Skating Skills, Freestyle, Dance levels. etc. They can also keep you informed throughout the season and give you opportunities to compete individually or test over and beyond the Learn to Skate program through U.S Figure Skating.

When choosing a private coach, make sure you ask for their credentials and references.  Remember, they are considered independent business owners that run their own private lessons. Some things to consider when selecting a coach are personality, learning and teaching styles, experience and technical knowledge. 

Private coaches that are not hired by the city to coach other groups must pay a fee to coach on our ice.
