The Roseville Skating School is under the direction of the Roseville Parks and Recreation Department and is run in accordance with the ISI (Ice Skating Institute). We are dedicated to provide a quality ice skating program for the recreational to advanced skaters.
Our tot and beginner classes introduce children to the fundamentals of ice skating in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. To help make sure your skater is prepared and can have an enjoyable experience please read the recommendations.
The ISI instructional program has a logical progression of skill development, whereby skills learned in each level build on skills achieved in the preceding level. It appeals to first-time skaters because it teaches skills they can master almost immediately.
Attractive ISI patches are awarded to recognize skaters’ achievements.
