Arctic Edge’s Professional Skaters Association– and U.S. Figure Skating–certified instructors slice across the arena’s frozen oval and instill students with ice-skating dexterity. During daily public-skate times, guests carve rental sets of bladed boots across a glassy surface, breaking its pristine façade with artful twirls and forcing grumbling zambonis to put in overtime hours. After getting their fill of snowplow stops and triple axels, skaters let taste buds show off their hockey skills with the ice cubes floating in frosty beverages.
Students in a five-week learn-to-skate program follow 30-minute twice-a-week lessons built around the U.S. Figure Skating basic-skills program. Divided into beginning and more advanced groups, lessons teach skaters as young as 3 the art of the aggressive arabesque or graceful body check. Students are welcome to stay for the public-skate session following each lesson and show off new skills in hockey, figure skating, and using toe picks to fish for trout lurking beneath the icy surface.
Arctic Edge Ice Arena
At Arctic Edge Ice Arena, skaters of all ages learn the principles of figure skating and hockey under the direction of a coaching staff whose collective experience includes training US Figure Skating competitors and contributing choreography to the 2002 Winter Olympics. Between lessons, the arena opens for public skating so guests can practice their technique or etch their self-portraits into the ice. In addition to lessons and open skating, Arctic Edge hosts several youth and adult skating clubs, such as the Oklahoma Curling Club.
The facility encompasses a concession stand and arcade, as well as a pro shop that serves both recreational and competitive skaters.
