Tuition is $120 for children and adults and skate rental is available for $5 per rental. Registration at the Cantiague rink will take place seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will continue until classes are filled. Classes are open to Nassau County residents only and Leisure Passes are required (those under 13 years of age may use their parent’s Leisure Pass number). Checks can be made payable to “Treasurer of Nassau County.”
Cantiague’s indoor ice skating rink is used by recreational skaters and hockey teams. The rink has also played host to Olympic gold medalists such as Nancy Kerrigan in 2004 and served as the practice facility for the New York Islanders from 1979 to 1992.
Ice skating sessions take place daily and birthday parties may also be arranged during public sessions.
