PROGRAM INFORMATION

SKATES: The Fargo Park District does not have skate rentals. Hockey or figure skates are acceptable. Double-bladed skates are not allowed. Skates should fit where the big toe brushes the end of the skates. They should be tied tight as they will loosen as the child skates. Scheels and Play It Again Sports sell used skates. DRESS: Children are required to wear mittens or gloves in every class. Hats are suggested for Adult and Tots and Beginners for good protection of the skater’s head. Legs and arms must be covered. Skaters should wear layers of sweatpants instead of snowpants. As the weather gets colder outside, the temperature of the rink also gets colder, so dress warm. CLASS BEHAVIOR: Skaters may not eat candy or chew gum during class. Parents are encouraged to watch but not to interact with the skater during classes, with the exception of the Adult and Tot program. CONFIRMATION NOTE: Registrants will be contacted prior to the start of the program with dates of all classes. TESTING: The testing dates will be noted in your confirmation. These dates will be the only time for testing. Test results will be handed out the last day of classes for the session.

NOVICE PATCH: Novice Patch is the next progressive step for skaters who have completed Advanced Level 6. Students are taught the fundamentals of freeskate, dance and moves in the field. You may register for up to two classes per session. Classes are held once a week for 45 minutes for six weeks. PRIVATE LESSONS: Classes are for those who have mastered at least Level 4 and want to start private lessons. If you are interested in private lessons please contact Laura Jacobson at: ljacobson@ FargoParks.com ADULT: This is a class for adults age 15 and older who would like to learn how to skate or improve on the basics of skating. Park District instructors will conduct group lessons and individual instruction.

GREEN UP with FARGO PARKS

3 WAYS

YOU CAN

GIVE BACK

TO THE PARKS

1

ADOPT-A-PARK

The Fargo Park District invites you to help keep your parks clean by joining our Adopt-A-Park Program. This is a great way for an individual, service club or group to help keep our parks clean along with having your own sense of pride in our community. For more information, please call at 499-7778 or visit FargoParks.com

B

ADOPT-THE-RED

The greatest threat to the Red River today is non-point source pollution. Keeping the banks of the Red River litter-free is one way to reduce non-point source pollution. The Adopt-The-Red program stresses prevention of litter accumulation and rubbish removal by recruiting people to “adopt” reaches of the river. Cleanups remove trash and litter while increasing community pride. For more information, please call 499-7778.

3

MEMORIALS & TRIBUTES

Commemorate significant people and note-worthy events with a tribute tree or bench within the park system. A tribute bench or tree provides lasting recognition of the significant people and occasions in your life while serving as a great enhancement to many people’s quality of life in Fargo. For more information, please call 499-7778.
