National Skating Month

Annually in January, the United Skates Figure Skating Association celebrates National Skating Month.  Events are held by rinks, member clubs and programs to celebrate and promote skating and to invite new skaters to try the sport. 

The Ice Den Scottsdale teamed up with the Coyotes Figure Skating Club of Arizona to officially celebrate National Skating Month on January 28, 2017 by inviting Level B & C Learn to Skate skaters and Homeschool to a day of FREE skating.  Everyone had a great time skating, playing games and the snow pile of ice was a huge hit!

Thank you to all for the skaters who joined us to show "Skating Is A Blast" at the Ice Den Scottsdale!

Holiday Ice Spectacular

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make the Holiday Ice Spectacular a wonderful success.  Both shows featured great performances and all skaters and spectators had a festive and fun time!

There were many pounds of food that was donated to the local food bank and all was greatly appreciated.

Happy Holidays to all!
