Northshire Skating Academy

Our Northshire Skating Academy program is designed to bring new kids, teenagers and adults who have never skated before and teach them the basics of recreational, figure, or hockey skating. Our model is designed to take beginners and move them through different levels until they are competent skaters.  This program will also help skaters who have been on the ice refine their skills. 

We have two different days for Learn to Skate: Wednesday afternoons and Sunday mornings. There are two different teaching sessions, one is the fall session that runs from October to the end of December, and the other is the winter session, which starts in January and goes until the last week in February.

Once registered we will place you into the appropriate level, and once we get on the ice we can adjust the levels as necessary.

JISP 2024

JISP-Junior Instructional Skating Program is put on by Riley Rink each winter beginning in January and going until the last week of February. It is for students of Vermont schools, private schools, and homeschoolers in the area that have early dismissal days for recreational programs.

Students will be taught the fundamentals of recreational skating in a station based skating program. They will have structured lessons on the ice and free-time on and off the ice from 12-2 on Tuesday-Thursday or 1-3 on Fridays.

For those that register, an email will be sent out a week prior to the start of JISP to help you and your student to prepare.
