Covid-19 Latest Update  

Due to Governor Inslee’s recent shut down order, we are sadly announcing that effective tomorrow, Nov. 17th Kent Valley Ice Centre will be closed for all indoor activities until at least Monday, Dec. 14th.

Whether you are looking for group lessons for entry-level skaters or elite development programs, Kent Valley would like to welcome you to experience the sport at our facility! 

Learn To Skate


Introductory classes that teach the basics and fundamentals of skating. Available to people of all and abilities. All groups are taught by experienced and certified instructors in an enjoyable and engaging environment.

Kent Valley Academy


The Academy offers small group specialty classes that bridge the gap between Learn to Skate and High Performance. These classes build the strong skating foundation that a skater uses for the rest of their career. This is where skaters can decide to pursue a path of recreational or competitive figure skating.

High Performance


Kent Valley Figure Skating Club's high performance programs are designed to assist skater's who have dreams of taking their figure skating careers to the next level. This includes off-ice and on-ice programs to maximize a skater's potential to become USA Figure Skating Gold Medalists, or Regional, Sectional or National competitors in singles, pairs or ice dance.
