Regular Season Practice


Our fun and varied practices consist of skating drills, lap skates, and simulated races. Members receive both group and individual instruction, affording everyone the opportunity to learn and grow. Our skaters are grouped according to ability (fast, faster and fastest), and all three groups are on the ice at the same time. While one group is skating on the track, the others are working on technique in the center of the ice, or simply warming up or cooling down while waiting their turn.


We have practice times at the Bud Bakewell (Riverside) Ice Rink in Buffalo from September through March. For directions and practice times check below.

Our 2020-21 skating season begins on Wednesday, September 9th. Working with the Riverside Ice rink, and following state, local, CDC and USS guidelines, we will take every reasonable precaution, and make any procedural changes that we feel necessary to conduct safe, productive and fun practices.
