Learn to Skate

The goal of the LEARN TO SKATE program is to take your child from the first steps on the ice to being able to navigate the ice while turning, stopping and skating backwards. This program is not for children who are able to skate well and are looking for more advanced technique instruction.

Mike Gorra coached high school hockey for 17 years. He has taught skating skills for the Icehawks since 2004. Mike and his wife Michelle teach a program that is centered on developing skills while having fun and taking the fear out of being on the ice.

LEARN TO SKATE will teach the basics of skating without the introduction of any hockey skills. Children must wear a hockey helmet with a cage and skates but no other equipment is required, although winter gloves are highly recommended!

It is NOT necessary to register with USA Hockey for the LEARN TO SKATE program at the Frederick Gunn School.
