Freestyle ice are private sessions that are sold to figure skaters in 30-minute blocks to those wishing to practice their skating skills. Skaters practice their routines, jumps spin and choreographic moves. It is also a time where coaches give their private lessons. Skaters must pre-register for all freestyle via DAYSMART.
Bellerive does not host any Public Sessions or Learn to Skate Classes. Bellerive Ice Skating Center provides some of the best freestyle ice within the city of Houston. Our ice is kept in pristine condition. Freestyle sessions are available most weekdays and there is usually limited weekend freestyle ice. Also, check out our early morning sessions!
Bellerive Ice Skating Center is managed in a unique and convenient way! We do not have permanent in-house coaches on staff, and also have no need to employ coaches for learn to skate classes. At Bellerive, we consider you a customer, albeit an important one!
If you are a certified coach holding the required credentials and attain sufficient liability insurance, then you may apply to be authorized to teach your private lessons at Bellerive Ice Center.
Once authorized, coaches must sign up to teach during a freestyle much the same as skaters. However, an authorized coach will receive a personal discount code with up to 75% discount from the regular freestyle price. Of course, there are rules which must be observed that are similar to most ice rinks throughout the country.
