Learn to Skate Cincinnati is Dedicated to Teaching Individuals to Ice Skate Confidently and Safely
Group Ice Skating Lessons
Learn to Skate Cincinnati offers a variety of programming. Classes for all ages and abilities are offered in recreational and competitive
skating as well as beginning skating for hockey. We use the Learn to Skate USA program designed by United States Figure Skating to aid in learning and skating enjoyment. Classes are generally taught in 7 week sessions or 6 week sessions in the summer. Beginner classes are 30 minutes in length and intermediate to advanced classes (Basic 2 and above) are 45 minutes in length with select-a-class options available. See registration brochure for details. Our coaching staff is the best trained in the area, and the majority of the coaches are Professional Skating Instructors on a full-time basis and well as members of the Professional Skaters Association. Our program boasts the most coaches who can demonstrate the moves they teach, which is an instruction quality key factor. Skate rental is available and included with your class registration, but do remember to wear warm layered clothing, gloves or mittens and a bike helmet if your skater is age 5 or under. Missed the start of a session? Try a Sprint class! (Available Fall/Winter sessions.) In addition to group lessons, LTS Cincinnati offers skating camps, bridge programs, private lessons, competitions, a winter ice show and more. Come join the fun!!
Want to be a figure skater? Learn to Skate Cincinnati offers all levels of the USFS Basic Skills Program. We are not owned by any rink. We skate primarily at Northland Ice Center, but may utilize other ice as well. Our coaches are the highest level figure skaters in Cincinnati. We are the only program with coaches who can actually demonstrate moves, which is critical to figure skating skill acquisition.

Ice Hockey Lessons
We offer an elite Hockey Developmental Program for beginning to intermediate players, uniting the hockey community by its formation: The elite Hockey ONE Academy - Home of the 'Elite Eighteen'. We work with our local hockey association and assist our families with exploring options which best fit their interests. We have aligned our Power Skating Skills with the USA Hockey American Developmental Model to give our players an opportunity to advance their individual skills in preparation for, or as a supplement to, league play. We encourage players to play other sports as well, in order to create a well-rounded athlete and find what they really love. This strategy enhances our focus on individual player development. Our philosophy is to teach the players the correct way to execute hockey skating and puck skills. Our model of teaching creates muscle memory and instinct in your player. Practicing the right way is how players will be able to enjoy the game at their highest potential. After all, you can’t enjoy playing hockey if you can’t skate, and the best players are always the best skaters. Come see why we continue to be the local leader in developmental programs. Our elite Hockey 5 is the highest teaching level available in Cincinnati, and will prepare your players for wherever they want to play! *Limited enrollment. Must meet minimum skating requirement by passing Hockey 1. Full gear required. *List of gear available on brochure download page.
