Across six 30-minute Learn It and Love It classes, kids aged 3 or older and adults can learn the basics of ice skating. The group classes include a skate rental and take place Mondays at 4:15 or 5:15 p.m., Wednesdays at 5:30 or 6:30 p.m., or Saturdays at 11:45 a.m. Students can practice for free during public skating on the day of their lesson.
Steel blades rhythmically slice the ice across two spacious rinks at Ice-Plex (formerly Iceoplex Escondido), an all-purpose facility pairing leisurely open skates with practiced instruction from director Courtney Moebs and a staff of pro figure skaters. Specialties span everything from choreography and freestyle to ice dancing and yeti dodging, though basic lessons for both kids and adults are also available. Public-skating sessions beckon amateurs and experts on a daily basis, during which skaters can emulate the moves of their favorite hockey players. Replete with a well-appointed gym, indoor pool, and jacuzzi, an attached fitness center offers classes in aerobics, aquatics, and an aquatic-aerobics class led by an off-duty Aquaman.
