Fairfax Ice Arena wants your first day on the ice to be safe, memorable and fun. Please read the important information below to know what to expect on your first day and to start your skating journey off right.
Arrive 15–20 minutes before your class time to check-in at the lessons office and get on the right pair of skates. Plan on coming to your group lesson start date and time unless you have received a phone call or email letting you know that your class has been cancelled or rescheduled.
Attend Orientation: Parents, guardians and caretakers of new Fairfax Ice Arena students must attend a quick orientation with staff during the first 10–15 minutes of their students' first day of class.
Claim your practice card: A practice card is public skate admissions and skate rentals that are included with your current purchase of group lessons. Pick-up your practice card when you check-in for your first day of group lessons at the Lesson Office. Skaters and or parents, guardians and caretakers of students are responsible for their practice cards. Learn more about practice cards in our group lesson policies section.
