November 16th: Governor Kim Reynolds made an announcement this evening, "with the exception of high school, collegiate and professional sports, all organized youth and adult sports activities of any size are suspended."
November 18th: Governor Kim Reynolds revised the proclamation allowing some limited activities for small groups. At this time we continue to have our Learn to Skate classes shut down due to their size, but will be resuming Freestyle.
 
We will honor purchased group lessons and freestyle sessions once activities are permitted to resume.
