Public Skate Sessions

Public sessions are traditionally two hours long. Depending upon the number of skaters, our sessions may include a brief break midway through the session. During this time, staff will ask skaters to clear the ice, while an ice-cut takes place. We monitor the ice for all sessions however, a skate guard may not always be on duty, especially during our smaller, weekday sessions.  As always, skaters participate at their own risk.

Freestyle Skate Sessions

Freestyle Sessions are designed for coaches training figure skaters skating at the freestyle level or above as defined by the United States Figure Skating Association. Freestyle sessions are not for beginner skaters and unlike Public Sessions, are not open to the general public. You must provide your skates and be proficient in at least the Free Skate 1 USFS level.

All skaters using these sessions must understand the patterns used on the ice. Figure skaters may work on moves-in-the-field, ice dancing, jumps, and spins as well as their routines with music. Baltimore City Recreation & Parks intend to provide competitive figure skaters a safe and productive environment to practice their skills and routines through these freestyle sessions.
