Skaters that have mastered Gateway’s Learn to Skate program are ready to move onto our Age Group Program. All Gateway skaters have the opportunity to be on the ice for one hour, three times a week. Skaters are divided into groups based on their abilities. Groups take turns on the ice with verbal instruction occurring while other groups skate.
Gateway has two hours of ice time at our Wednesday evening and Sunday afternoon practices. Once skaters have the ability, speed and endurance required, they will be invited to stay for “second hour”, an honor that many young skaters look forward to.
