Welcome to BHSA's Learn-to-Skate and
Figure Skating Program!


All skill levels are welcome and we offer beginner to advanced-level instruction at the Burlington Ice Palace located at 36 Ray Ave in Burlington, MA.

Lessons are available three sessions per year:
Fall, Winter & Spring. Please see the links on our left menu bar for details.

Learn-to-Skate & Figure Skating Group Lessons Include 50 minutes of instruction.
Unlike some programs we do not split your child's lesson into free skating time and an instructional period. Our 50 minute lesson periods for beginners is 50 minutes of lesson time. 25 minutes is spent receiving instruction with a PSA professional instructor. Another 25 minutes is spent practicing and receiving tutoring with the help of our advanced level skaters. Our graduate volunteers are young adults who have completed the Basic Skills Program and have become wonderful role models for our newer skaters. Adult group lessons consist of 25 minutes of group instruction with a professional skate coach and 25 minutes of free-skate practice time each week.

BHSA's entire lesson period is spent helping your child reach the next level of the Learn to Skate Program. Program levels are Snowplow 1-4, Basic Skills 1-6, Pre Free Skate and Free Skate 1-6, and they are described in the Learn to Skate USA Record Book. Graduate levels are Bronze, Silver & Gold.

Registration includes your child's Learn to Skate membership. Upon joining BHSA's Learn to Skate Program they'll receive...
- Learn to Skate membership card
- Learn to Skate Record Book
- Sports accident insurance coverage, through Learn to Skate USA
- General information about ice skating via our email list

A few items to note... Helmets are required for all skaters up to and including Basic 3. Although not required beyond Basic 3, they are certainly encouraged. Bicycle helmets (only if fit properly) are allowed, but we recommend skate/rollerblade helmets. Skaters should wear comfortable layers of clothing and keep a spare pair of dry gloves in their skate bags.

Note: A proper fitting helmet is required through level Basic 3 and encouraged beyond level Basic 3
