Skating Lessons (NKSC)

The North Kawartha Skating Club

The North Kawartha Skating Club prides itself on providing programs for the entire community. Come and learn to skate with us, where our skaters love the action, music and fun. Then in March they get to display the results of all their hard work and dedication in a spectacular ice show. 

Skating lessons at the NKCC begin September 12, 2017 and end with the North Kawartha Skating Club Annual Show on March 17, 2018. Registration begins in August. With many skill levels, we are able to assess your child's skating abilities and place them in the appropriate group.

Learn to Skate

Learn to Skate coaches work with young skaters to develop balance and the basics of skating. Skaters work on forward and backwards skating.

Intermediate

Intermediate coaches work with skaters who have graduated our Learn to Skate program. Skaters start working on basic spins and jumps.

Senior

Senior coaches work with skaters who have graduated our Intermediate program. Skaters continue working on higher level jumps and spins.
