Arlington Skatium – UPDATE

6 Jan

Get the whole family some much-needed exercise at Arlington Skatium!  On the first Friday of every month, join their Preschool/Stroller skating session from 10 am to 12 pm.

The cost is only $4 per skater/stroller, which includes skate rental fees.

Mark your calendars!  The Preschool/Stroller skating dates for the rest of this school year are: 1/7/2011, 2/4/2011, 3/4/2011, 4/1/2011, and 5/6/2011.

Arlington Skatium is located at 5515 South Cooper Street.  It also offers public skating sessions and skating classes.  Click here for more information.

UPDATE BY JEN:  They have skating classes for all ages on Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 pm and Saturdays from 10-11 am.  First class is free; subsequent classes are $6 each or purchase a 5-class punch card for $25.  No need to sign up or reserve a spot; just show up for class.  I took my 3-year-old and 5-year-old to the class last night with some of our friends – it was a hoot!  The class was probably about 15 kids, all of them under the age of 7 or so.  Even the really little ones were doing great.  The teacher had them trying different things – kicking balloons, squatting down, standing on one foot, etc.  Parents can get skates for free and join the kids at any time, or just watch from the sidelines.  Kids and parents both can stay for the open skate session after the Wednesday class – for no additional charge.  (Not sure, but I would assume that’s the same for Saturday, too.)  The open skate session is crowded and noisy compared to the classes, but still fun.
