Joining Sk8 Bay as a Club Member represents the next step in your skating journey. By joining the Club, you have the option of working with a Sk8 Bay Coach during purchased Club Ice sessions. Private lessons are a great way to quickly develop skills by taking advantage of one-on-one interaction and individualized instruction plans. Private lessons can be done as either the primary form of instruction, or used in conjunction with group instruction.
Please note that Sk8 Bay Coaches are independent contractors and set their own rates and instruction approach. All of our coaches are USFS members and complete SafeSport training, which includes a background check.
