Re-Opening Information

We have been holding limited classes since July 2021, primarily for students on-going in our program.

As of April 2022 we began to once again offer classes for beginning students in the Basic 1 & 2 levels — ages 6 and up. However, younger students (ages 5 and under) who are new to skating and would normally be in the Snowplow Sam levels will have to wait a while longer. We can not yet risk the close contact required when working with the little ones.

Also as of April 2022, we revised the class schedule and add another day (Friday) and added more classes on Saturday, including a Power Stroking class for students in Basic 5 and up.

One of our Covid precautions is to carefully manage the number of skaters on the ice. We must impose attendance limits, but we want to avoid turning anybody away at the door. So we are asking you to let us know in advance when you are planning to come.

To make this as easy as possible, we have set up a system for you to book your classes online. Bookings are first come, first served up to the capacity limit for each class period. Details are below.

If you arrive at the rink without having booked a class, you will be admitted only if space allows. Please do not risk getting turned away. Make your reservations ahead of time.

Precautions at the Rink

Please observe the limit of one parent or chaperone per family. Other friends and family members should stay at home.

We ask everyone to wear a face mask at all times in the building.

No food is allowed inside the rink. Water bottles are acceptable, but must be marked with your name.

Please stay home if you are feeling sick or experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms.

You can view your bookings by clicking the All Bookings button near the bottom of the page. The listing provides options to cancel bookings, or to add bookings to your personal calendar. You may find this helpful.

You will also be sent an email confirmation. That message will also provide a link for cancelling a booking.

Booking Policies

  • Reservations are open until 3 hours before the class time.
  • Cancellations are allowed up to this same deadline.
  • If you miss a class without cancelling the reservation, you will forfeit the skater’s skating school credit. This is in fairness to others. It would be a discourtesy to exclude others from a class because it’s being held for you “just in case” you decide to come.
  • There is no charge for making a reservation, but you must have skating school credits available in your account at East West Ice Palace. If you run out of credits you will be asked to renew (8 classes for $120) at the front desk when you arrive for class.
  • All skaters must check in at the front desk.
  • As stated above, if you arrive at the rink without having booked a class, you will be admitted only if space allows. Please do not risk getting turned away. Make your reservations ahead of time.
