While the ice situation is uncertain due to the coronavirus, news about summer sessions is starting to trickle in. Here’s what I have for summer 2020 so far. If you know of any offerings that aren’t on this list, get in touch.
- Pickwick Ice, Burbank, CA, weekdays beginning June 15: A figures class is offered as part of the summer skating camp.
- Sun Valley Summer Skating School, Sun Valley, ID, June 15–August 21: Daily patch sessions are offered on the outdoor rink. There will be a patch class on Monday mornings, 7:40–8:05.
This section is out of date, but many rinks do the same thing every summer, so it’s worth checking to see what offerings will be repeated.
When school’s out, many rinks offer special programming. Sometimes this includes figures! Here’s a list of rinks that are offering patch sessions and/or figure classes in summer 2019. More will be added as they come in. If you know of any offerings that aren’t on this list, get in touch.
