Riley Rink Winter Schedule Announcement


Dear Riley Rink Friends and Families:

We thank you all for your patience and support during these unprecedented times! We have great news to share as we move forward with a focus on silver linings. 

The Vermont State Department of Health recognizes our successful efforts to meet all health and safety requirements for Covid-19 mitigation, and we have the green light to resume our Northshire Skating Academy Learn to Skate (NSA) Programs, including both group lessons and skills clinics. For groups that missed a lesson during the pause, we plan to add a makeup session, details TBA. 

Please scroll down to the schedule/calendar to see the new selection of clinics available, or click HERE to view a list of offerings.

In order to provide families skating opportunities that are both fun and safe during the pause in league play, we are also offering several daily 1-hour sessions of private ice rentals at the special discounted rate of $99 per hour for the full sheet or $50 per half sheet. Please visit to create an account, or log in and click "Book Sessions." to see the available times and book yours. This special deal is only valid during the pause in league play and is subject to change.

In order to stay open, we urgently need everyone’s continued cooperation in following all Covid-19 health and safety protocols, including screening procedures, mask wearing, physical distancing and handwashing / using hand sanitizer. 

We are  grateful to our Riley Rink family for taking this journey with us. We are strengthened by the support of this amazing community. See you on the ice, but no closer than 6 feet...!

Very truly yours,

The Board of Directors of the Northshire Civic Center, Inc. and Ian, Dana, Steven, Zack, Megan, Sooner, Joe and Jeffrey,
