Skating School : Bulletin 1 Autumn 2013


SOFT TOY WEEK next week (week No. 40 ), 30.9.-6.10.2013
As in our skating school`s calendar (  we will have a SOFT TOY - week  30.9.-6.10.2013.You can bring to the ice your hand-held soft toy ! Please check that the soft toy is so small that it is possible  to safely skate with a soft toy. Parts of the soft toy can`t  drop  onto the ice for safety reasons.


It has been a good start in our skating school. Skaters and instructors get to know each other, the preliminary training groups are formed and the development of skills on the ice continues.
Group transfers will be done within a season if necessary. This allows us to consider the best of each skater's personal development. Skaters can train a group involved in that most closely matches their own development and skill level.
From Ice Rink lobbies you will find a notice board  (Espoonlahti: on the wall right next to the bulletin board and Matinkylä janitor's booth on the wall immediately to the right), on this board you will find the  skating school`s locker room number of the current skating day. Harmonious and smooth ice rink will remain among the users, when we are in accordance with the guidelines.
Dressing rooms are only for skaters, and we hope that no more than one parent to help the skater. This way the dressing room does not get too crowded.

Barrier boxes by the ice are often very crowded and they  are intended only for skaters. Parents can follow the skaters up to the gate of  a barrier box. This way the smallest skaters don`t have to stay behind the adults.
Parents can see the skating lessons at the stands. This way it is easier for the skaters to consentrate on teaching.

It is good to arrive a little bit earlier to the ice rinks. It is nice to change the skates without a hurry. Be prepared that the ice rink parking areas are congested and sometimes it takes time to find a parking place.
We are also careful about that we do not park our cars for the disabled places and zeepra crossings. We all drive slowly because  there is a lot of little skaters coming and going in and out  the ice rink.

You will find information about skating school weekly from our skating schools`s calendar and from our web-pages.

Have a sunshinefull and happy September and October!
