Top of our list for lessons is UBC’s Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sport Centre’s Arena with its Learn to Skate program that starts at three years of age. For children with a little bit of skating experience, they offer Ice Mice lessons that are sure to spark a love for the game of hockey in your little one. Online registration is now available for their spring programs (starting March 1).
Burnaby 8 Rinks also offers learn-to-skate programs through Canlan Ice Sports. Group lessons start at age four, and of note are their popular parent and tot lessons for two to five year-olds.
