Ice skating
Adaptive Ice Skating: The OASIS Adaptive Ice Skating Program began in the Fall of 2013. Skating lessons are typically scheduled on Sunday evenings at the Paul Louis Arena in downtown Rochester. Veterans and their families can join to learn to skate or to improve their skating skills. We start with a "social hour" including food and beverages, and then spend up to an hour and a half on the ice. All equipment (skates, helmets, elbow pads) is provided by Locker Room Sports and is free to the veteran and his/her family. Members of the Rochester Americans Hockey Club Alumni Association, as well as other volunteers, provide skating instruction. Skating lessons are structured in 4 categories, from beginner to advanced, and typically last for 6 weeks. Graduation is determined by the collective decision of the program coordinator, skating coach and the veteran. Two 6-week sessions are scheduled each year, one in the Fall and one in the Winter (after the holidays).
