The City of Farmington Hills offers the Learn to Skate Program . Snowplow Sam is designed for children ages three to five to develop the basics of movement on the ice in four different levels. While Basic Skills offers students ages 5 and up a well-structured and fun environment to develop their ability and confidence. This is done through 6 different levels that skaters move through at their own pace.
Figure Skating: Skaters that are interested in figure skating can join the Farmington Hills Figure Skating Club. This Not for Profit program encourages their members to develop their skills in a welcoming environment. They host year round ice sessions as well as an Ice Show in May and a Holiday Show in December. In June, the Farmington Hills Figure Skating Club hosts Summer Swizzle, a competition that is part of the Michigan Basic Skills Series.
Hockey: The arena offers hockey for youth through adult programs. They are the home to Little Caesars Farmington Hills Hockey Association, which is an independant, non-profit volunteer based hockey association. The program offers not only competitive travel hockey, but also recreational in house hockey programs. The arena is also home to hockey programs at the high school, college, and adult levels.
We’ve visited a few indoor ice arenas around Metro Detroit and I think Farmington Hills Ice Arena is one of the most organized and cleanest ice arenas we’ve been to. The staff were very accommodating and provided what my kids needed during our visit. They have a variety of sizes for ice and hockey skate shoes rental for children and adults. They were very comfortable and my son never complained about them. They provide walkers to little beginner ice skaters for balance, support and build confidence on the ice. My son had a blast using it and trying to catch up with his big sister skating around the arena. They have well groomed and smooth ice skating rink for all guests to enjoy. We love their time schedules for open skates for guests to take advantage especially when there is no school during snow days. They have a snack bar and equipment store but they were closed during the time we visited. I definitely recommend Farmington Hills Ice Arena to families who love ice skating all year round!
