After attending a few "coffee clubs" in other cities I really wanted to start one at our rink. The dilemma was whether to have it be part of our figure skating club or a rink function. After weighing all the options I decided that making it a rink function would allow more new adult skaters to get their feet wet... or cold. Hopefully some of our new adult skaters will be inspired to take more lessons and join our figure skating club as a result. First things first...: To have the experience of skating with adult peers and getting a group lesson to boot.
My rink has allowed me to use an hour of normally unused ice as a Drop-In Adult Coffee Club.
The rink also offers Drop In Hockey so they decided it was only fair to offer a similar drop in for figure skaters. (We have no rules about what type of skates you put on your feet - just no pucks or sticks and the lessons are geared toward figure skating)
I am so excited to have been instrumental in getting this started and I hope it's a big success. Through just word of mouth and Facebook we scrounged up 10 adults at our first session Friday Jan 13, 2017.
