School is back in session for Jacksonville, Florida and somehow, the kids are still full of energy! Ice skating is the perfect extracurricular activity for your child! Whether they’re interested in hockey or figure skating, we have the ideal after-school program available at Jacksonville Ice and Sportsplex. And now for a limited time, for kids in kindergarten through fifth grade, when you sign up your child or children for our First Coast Fall Initiative, you get two months of skating for free! Here are a few reasons why ice skating is the ultimate after school activity.
Focus, Focus, Focus!
Learning to focus can often be hard for young and energetic kids. Ice skating allows them to take that energy and channel it into intense and athletic focus on the ice. This type of focus allows skaters to forget about their day for an hour and let their body take over as they practice on their skills.
Ice Skating is Weather Proof
Nothing is more frustrating than racing to pick up the kids from school and getting them ready for soccer practice only to have the practice rained out after the first ten minutes. At Jacksonville Ice, we have practice no matter the weather, leaving you stress-free and in a climate-controlled facility.
Ice Skating is a Lifelong Hobby
Unlike a lot of sports, ice skating can be a sport that is continued throughout the skater’s life. Whether they use it as a form of exercise or decide to compete as an adult, they can continue skating as long as they want. In our Learn to Skate programs, we teach a national curriculum that builds a solid foundation to ensure skating success! Sign your child up today and you can find a life-long passion! Even as an adult, it’s easy to learn! We also have an Adult Academy that teaches you the fundamentals of skating and improves your current skills. Skating is an enjoyable way to increase your fitness levels and add a new and unique hobby to your life. We welcome all levels of interest and skills, so be sure to sign up today!
