"Elizabeth was never on ice skates until her first lesson/session with Coach Pat's group. A few years later she's in level 5 and now will be trying speed skating...unbelievable! I can't say enough nice things about the Intro to Ice Skating program -- sincerely. Thank you and your crew for everything all of you do to make learning to ice skate so much fun."
