Classes offer your skater plenty of opportunity to work on developing skills for ice sports from figure skating to ice hockey. CIFSC is currently partnered with Des Moines Youth Hockey Association to help your skater develop the skills necessary to learn hockey. Our sessions include a 30 minute group skill lesson followed by 30 minutes of practice time. There are classes available for 3 year olds to adult, and for all skill levels! Each participant is invited to join their class for a performance routine in the Winter and Spring Shows!
All Sessions take place at Buccaneer Arena at the following address: 7201 Hickman Road, Urbandale, IA 50322.
Each session is $100/skater, and $75 for each additional skater in the same family. Each session includes 6 classes – either Wednesdays or Saturdays. If you’d like to attend both days, it’s just $175/skater. Full payment is due by the first day of each session. Cash, Checks or Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express) are accepted.

They focus on finding balance and comfort on the ice as well as working to develop the muscle groups that will be required later in more advanced courses.||It is highly recommended all skaters wear figure skates at this stage since figure skates have an elongated back edge and provide more stability for wobbly beginners. Figure skate rentals are included in the price. Please wear a warm and close fitting jacket; pants and gloves as it gets cold on the ice.|
