Open Freestyle Skate (starting back in September)

Join us for open freestyle skating. This is ice time for figure skaters to work on edge work and routines. This is designed for skaters to bring a coach to develop and practice routines. Skaters share the entire ice surface and can take turns as needed using bigger or smaller portions of the ice to work on edges, moves and routines. They can also play their music for their routines which they cannot do at open skating. Great time to work on your figure skating skills with or without a coach.

VMCC is offering Open Freestyle Skating on Sundays in our East Rink! Weekday morning and afternoon times vary. ALAYS check the schedule online before leaving for the rink as it is the most up-to-date. 

Fees: $8/non-member, $8/Community Center members or $70/10x pass
