There is something for everyone in our ice skating group lessons program. Fairfax Ice Arena offers year-round figure skating and hockey group lessons from beginner to advanced levels. 

Each class is a progression to develop a student's skating skills. Skaters must successfully complete the current level before they can graduate to the next class level.​​ Fairfax Ice Arena group lessons is a national sanctioned program by the Ice Sports Industry (ISI). ​​
