Toyota Arena offering skating classes

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- Leaders at the Toyota Arena say it's time for you to learn to skate.

They're offering hockey and figure skating classes for kids of all ages.

Christmas break skating camp started Tuesday and they say they have classes all year.

Coaches say the most important thing is to be able to keep trying even after falling down.

'Kids who skate a lot they don't count the falls anymore. It's part of the sport. Figure skating or hockey. You just learn to pick yourself and get back in the game," says Skating Coach Craig Bond

"My first coach said falling down makes you better. It shows you're trying your hardest if you fall down it's no big deal," says Tri-City Americans Center Austin Mayton

If you'd like to learn to skate call 509-737-3721.
