Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level player or skater, come to STR and get 'one on one' training and instruction by highly skilled, professional coaches with proven skating and/or hockey skills and experience.
Private Lesson instructors at Stamford Twin Rinks are Independent Contractors, offering private lessons regardless of age or skating level, the opportunity to work one-on-one with professional coaches. Private lessons help the skater master difficult skills and prepare for participation in the competitive environment.
Lesson dates, times, and frequency are set up between skater and coach at designated times. Private lessons are offered for a variety of skills including: basic skills, test preparation, competition participation, freestyle, moves in the field, ice dance, power skating, synchronized skating and ice hockey. The agreement you enter into with a coach for private instruction is between you and the coach of your choice for ongoing lessons. Please consult your current private lesson coach regarding his/her policy for cancelling and/or rescheduling of lessons. Make sure you and the lesson coach exchange all contact information. Contact your lesson coach directly to cancel your scheduled lesson.
Stamford Twin Rinks and its staff are not responsible for parent/coach communications or for rescheduling private lessons. Private lessons are taught during Sprindale Figure Skating Club freestyle times, and select public sessions. Lesson fees vary by Coach. In addition there is a walk-on charge for ice usage and skate rentals. All payments for ice time must be paid for at the Admissions Window before the lesson begins and prior to getting onto the ice surface. Lessons can be any length of time that the parent and the coach feel appropriate to meet the skater’s needs. When paying for private lesson ice time, check in and pay at the Admissions Window and get your receipt and your admission sticker.
