Private Coaching

Skaters may hire a private coach (Professional Coach or Junior Coach) who is approved by the Board for generally 15 or 30 minutes per week. Skaters will pay their coach separately from the club. Please keep in mind, rates may vary from $20-$30 per hour for private lessons, based on the professional coaches credentials. See your coach for their fees. If you are not an Advanced Ice Skater (in Basic Skills) you will need to still pay for your ice time which is $15 per hour. Punch Cards are available 10 hours for $150.

Professional Coaches from outside of MIRFSC may coach, but need to be pre-approved by the Board.
