The following are the credit packages and session credit rates for the freestyle sessions.
Are you a figure skater looking to train with coaches at Fairfax Ice Arena? Contact Skating Director Eric Tsai to request your first private lesson with one of our coaches. In your request, please indicate the coach or coaches you are interested in; a contact name and phone number; the skater's name, age, skating level, experiences and goals; and indicate as many freestyle session days and times that you are available and qualified to skate in. We will follow up with you in a week and a half or two weeks maximum during the busy winter season.
Payment must be made online in advance before the skater goes on the ice. Fairfax Ice Arena monitors the sessions to ensure that the skaters on the session are registered and are following etiquette. Skaters who go on the ice during a session and are not registered will be charged an additional service fee of 3 credits for the violation. Fairfax Ice Arena reserves the right to ask skaters who are on the ice and are not registered for the session to leave and or to charge them the additional 3 credit service fee for the violation.
Skaters must cancel at least 15 minutes before the session start time or lose their credits.
Payment of the session does not include the price of a private lesson. All payments for private lessons must go through our payment system.
Always exercise caution during freestyle sessions and follow etiquette.
Policies are subject to change. If you have any questions or concern, please contact us.
