Freestyle ice time is for private one-on-one lessons. Though it is open to the public, it is intended for the use of coaching students who have finished Learn To Skate training program. It is more structured/programmed than public recreational skates. Freestyle sessions allow skaters extra practice time to fine-tune their skills. Skaters can work independently on various skills or receive a private lesson.
