Enjoy skating fun with Scandia winter recreation programs

Community Editor

Community members are invited to have fun, enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise at Scandia’s outdoor Wojtowicz Skating Rink by checking out the city of Scandia’s winter recreation skating programs beginning in January.

The six-week “Learn to Skate” program is structured to teach recreational skating to children of different abilities and is taught by a trained coach. The program, for beginners, is directed at children who have little or infrequent skating experience. More advanced skaters would work on a variety of skating skills.

This year, Scandia will continue to offer the six-week “Pleasure Skating” program. A volunteer adult will be available to provide supervision and guidance while the participants enjoy practicing their skills.

Pre-registration is required, and classes often fill up quickly. Register by the Dec. 23 deadline to avoid a late fee. Registration forms and detailed information about the programs can be found on the city’s website (www.ci.scandia.mn.us).
