Skating promotes overall fitness and improves balance and coordination. Adult classes range from basic skills to specialized experiences in hockey, figure and speed skating.

Moms, dads, grandparents and caregivers can participate in Skating School classes at the same time as their "young charges," thanks to the Pettit's family-friendly schedules.
