Spring 2018 Program

Returning families already have an account with us for registration. (Your login is the email address at which you receive our communications.)

For new families, don’t forget to create your account before you register!

Registration begins February 26th for the Spring 2018 session.

Please call us at 514-695-4368 to register if your class is not available for online registration.

Class schedule may also be viewed here.

Online registration is available for the following classes: Monday, Wednesday, 7 & over Thursday and Sunday, New Skater Saturday and Sunday. Thank you for your patience!

For levels 1, 2, and 3, online registration is only available to skaters currently registered in a Learn to Skate class at Excellent Ice in the Fall 2017 season. If you do not meet these requirements, please call us at 514-695-4368 to complete your registration or discuss class options.

For returning families, please note that we have rearranged our classifications for the Fall 2017 season to align with the weekday Preschool Learn to Skate classes, and new skaters as well as skaters requiring assistance (e.g. a bar, extra individual attention, etc.) to move comfortably on the ice should now register for “New Skater,” which replaces “Level 1 – Beginner 3-5 year olds”.

Skaters who can move on their own comfortably (as well as get back up unassisted) may register in Level 1 (Formerly “Level 1 – Advanced 4-6 year olds”).

Thank you!
