  • Super Rink has helmets for rent during skating school hours for $3

ISI Testing Program

The Ice Skating Institute (ISI) is a complete graded program of lessons. The ISI Testing Program makes every effort for skaters to earn badges. We will test those skaters only ready to pass, creating a positive environment for learning. It is not uncommon for a student to repeat a level before mastering all the skills at that level. Skaters must be current members of ISI to register tests passed.  Registration forms available at the Skating School office. ISI Badge Board display is in MASC Rink. 

Communication Board

The skating school has an enclosed bulletin board to display upcoming skating school events, highlight our skaters & staff, post the latest skating school information and a source for used equipment (skates etc.) for sale. Next to the bulletin board is a skating school suggestion box for constructive criticism, suggestions & concerns. Concerns will be addressed only if signed with phone number.

Check out the buzz!
