Our team of competitors earns first place rankings due to their hard work and dedication to on-ice and off-ice training. We are the only skating school in Chicago who offers two hours of consecutive ice time, two days a week in downtown Chicago. We also offer private and semi-private lessons to help students advance faster.
Our competitor skaters train as a team with up to five coaches on Thursdays, 4:30 to 6:30 pm and Saturdays, 10 am to 12 noon at Johnny’s IceHouse East, 1350 W. Madison. The Group Training sessions gives each skater the opportunity to practice and fine-tune his or her competition routines so they can be their best at competition. Learn more about competing>
