A PRIVATE LESSON is a one on one approach to learning how to ice skate.
THERE IS A WAITING LIST FOR PRIVATE LESSONS AT THIS TIME.
They are helpful to beginners, group lesson students who may not be catching on as quickly as their classmates, or for the more advanced group lesson or Aspire skater who wishes to accelerate their skill development.
Private lessons are necessary for any skater who intends to compete and/or take advanced USFS skating tests.
-Private lesson coaching rates vary by coach.
-All Bayonne Blades coaches are Learn to Skate USA certified.
-The coach's fee is due weekly at the start of each lesson. If a private lesson is cancelled less than 24 hours before the scheduled time, payment is due for missed lesson.
-All Bayonne Blades private lesson skaters must pay the $30 annual registration fee.
-There is a flat fee for the full session of ice that the lesson is taking place upon. The fee varies depending upon whether the skater is enrolled in group lessons, Aspire or is taking a private lesson without being part of the group program. See categories/rates for each below.
-There are no makeups for this ice.
-Should your coach be needed to cover a group lesson class, a credit that days ice will be given.
Private lesson skaters are asked to enter and exit the ice from the Zamboni end door. Entrance doors must remain clear after entry.
All first-time skaters, taking a private lesson, will begin off ice with their instructor.
Beginner private lesson skaters must wear a helmet.
Player’s benches/boxes are for Bayonne Blades skaters and instructors only. No parents, friends, siblings, spectators allowed.
Only properly credentialed USFS/LTSUSA Certified Skating Instructors, who have been approved by Bayonne Blades, may give instruction/offer technique to skaters. Encouragement is welcomed; instructing is specifically prohibited.
Instructors will not be coming off of the ice to take private lessons payments. All coaching fees should be paid at the start of the private lesson, if not prior to the lesson.
If you need to speak to your instructor, do so during your own lesson time. Please do not interrupt a coach during another skater’s lesson time or while they are coaching a group class.
