Register for Ice Skating Lessons

Registrations can take place online at or in person at the Waconia Ice Arena. Registrations are not accepted on the first day of lessons. Those registering for Waconia Learn to Skate lessons on the start date are not subject to prorating. This policy is necessary to prevent late registrations and allows adequate time for hiring of instructors. Keep in mind that it is common for children to repeat a level several times before advancing to next level. Attendance at all sessions is important for your child to learn new skills. Registration deadlines are one week prior to start of lessons or until spaces are full.
