Learn to Skate with Skate Mate!
Skate Mate is our favorite skate trainer for children. Skate Mates are V-shaped structures on wheels that help children to balance while they’re first beginning to skate. They’re like mobile rails to help kids skate.
The goal is that after learning the coordination of moving their skates across the rink with the Skate Mate, your child will have the confidence (and balance) to set off on their own. At Chester Skateland, we’re proud to offer Skate Mate trainers for a $5 rental fee.
Once your kid starts to get the hang of balancing and moving on their skates, then you might want to consider graduating them to one of our skating lessons!
Our lessons are all ages, and are held each Saturday from 9:30 am – 10:00 am and Tuesdays from 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm. The $8 class admission includes the 30 minute class led by a qualified instructor, skate rentals, and free admission to the open skate session that immediately follows the class. This means that your child can get a little extra attention and get a little more comfortable on skates for 30 minutes before the door opens for the general open skate session.
So check out our hours and upcoming special events calendar and make plans to bring your little one to the rink. For more information about our Chester skating lessons or our Skate Mate trainers, give us a call at 804-748-0379.
