Skate Day highlights area skating programs, groups


Explore programs designed for all levels of skaters and meet with representatives from various skating organizations Nov. 11 at South Suburban Parks and Recreation’s Great Skate Day.

The recreation district’s two ice arenas have a number of activities planned that highlight the various skating sports, including figure skating, hockey, synchronized skating and more. Each location offers a group skating lesson free with public skate admission: at 12:30 p.m. at South Suburban Ice Arena, 6580 S. Vine St., Centennial, and at 1:30 p.m. at Family Sports Ice Arena, 6901 S. Peoria St., Centennial.

A Turkey Shoot is planned at each arena. Participants receive a raffle ticket for a chance to shoot a puck at a wooden turkey target; the first two to hit the target will win a free, frozen turkey. The shoot is at 1:15 at South Suburban Ice Arena and 2:15 at Family Sports Ice Arena.

Representatives will be on hand from several skating organizations, including South Suburban’s learn to skate program, Littleton Hawks (South Suburban Ice Arena only), Arapahoe Warriors (Family Sports arena only), adult hockey, Denver Synchronicity, Ice Theatre of the Rockies, Denver Figure Skating, Colorado Skating Club and Showtime on Ice.
