Recreational Skating Lessons

We offer skating classes for children ages 3 and up, as well as for adults learning to skate.
These are flexible skating classes. Though we have recommended classes, there are no strict levels, allowing kids to move up when they are ready rather than linger in a beginner group.
Beginner classes run half an hour and are geared for first-time skaters and those with simple, shuffling skills. We offer a ratio of minimum of 1 instructor for 4 students, due to the high attention needed for new skaters.
Regular classes run for a full hour. These are for children who have demonstrated strong forward gliding and stopping ability. Here they will develop backwards skating, tight turns, pivoting, and forwards/backwards crossovers.
Within these two classes, we further divide them into groups based on skill level so that your child is always working on new skills.

No carrying of children on the ice at any time or during any program or rental.
The arena has only street parking. Please observe the posted parking regulations in the area.
Please remember that you are here to have fun and learn more about skating and hockey. Please remember that our house league is a recreational and learning place for all. Allow the kids to have fun, the score of the game means nothing! It's the smile on the face of that happy child that matters.
All volunteers & coaches under 19 must wear helmets behind the bench and no children under the age of 16 allowed behind bench or, area near Zamboni Door Exit.
Adult players remember that you are here to have fun.
'In your face' hockey is not fun and "unsportsmanlike play" WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
The program reserves the right to remove players that in our opinion are overly aggressive in their style of play and may cause you to be ejected from any of the adult and youth leagues.

Arena History
Toronto Parks & Recreation Department constructed William H. (Bill) Bolton Arena in 1971.
The arena opened to the public in November 1971 and was operated by the Parks & Recreation Department until appointment of a Board of Management in January 1972.
Since 1972 the arena has gone from a rental facility to operating family programs.
Bill Bolton Arena is unique in its operations compared to that of other city arenas. The Board of Management creates programs that respond to community needs that are complementary to the facility and neighbourhood.
The Board of Management and staff want to thank the community for their support of the arenas' programs. It is the community at large that has enabled this facility to be fiscally responsible and still maintain a high level of community programs.
Job Opportunities
We are always looking for community residents, youth, high school, college or university students interested in part-time employment with the arena or; to fulfill high school co-op or community volunteer credits.
