Private Lesson Information


Private lessons are available during public sessions, work sessions and freestyle sessions. If interested please contact the coach directly for scheduling. Coaches that work for our rink are listed below.


When should my skater be in private lessons?
A skater enrolled in group lessons can benefit from additional ice time with a private lesson coach.  It can assist with the pace a skater may move through the Learn-to-Skate program. If you are a new skater and have not taken lessons before you may want to schedule a lesson with a coach to evaluate your skater, based on their recommendation you would sign up for the appropriate group lesson.


How do I pay?
During private lessons you pay the coach directly based on the agreed fee. You also have to pay Haymarket Iceplex for the ice session. Private lessons are currently given on public sessions, work sessions and freestyle sessions. If you are not at the level of Freeskate 1 or higher, you cannot skate on a freestyle session unless you are in a lesson with your coach. When your lesson is done, you must exit the ice session.


What if I already have a coach from another ice arena, can they come to the Haymarket Iceplex for my lesson?
Only coaches with a Haymarket Iceplex contract may coach at the Haymarket Iceplex Arena. Please contact the Skating Director for more information on guest coaching contracts.


If new to finding an instructor

If you are new to finding an instructor for private or semi-private lesson, please know that all the coaches below can teach children how to skate at the beginner level and more. If you have a hockey interest, these coaches can and will provide you with how to skate skills. You can NOT play hockey without knowing how to skate well.

 If you are interested in a hockey coach only, please see the "hockey tab" on this site for hockey instructors. They will teach skating and stickhandling, and shooting skills.
