Frequently Asked Questions

Can I go on the ice with my child?

No - Only Instructors & volunteers who have been certified are able to go on the ice with the skaters. If you are interested in volunteering, please email secretary@tcyha.org

Will there be pushers or skating aids available?

Yes - Please allow for the Instructors to provide your skater with the tools necessary to assist your skater. You will notice that the Instructors start to use them less as they approach the 3rd week of lessons

What if I miss a class or two?

Although we understand that things come up, we ask that you try to make every effort to attend each session as registration for other sessions could be full and therefore, make it difficult to schedule your skater for a make up lesson
