For years, the beautiful ice skating rink located on the grounds of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs was not open to the public, but that has changed. It has been recently announced that Pam Knodt Nearhoof, a longtime Colorado resident and figure skating coach, has been named the new manager of Cadet Ice Arena.
"The Air Force Academy rink is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, so please join us for freestyle or recreational skating. I look forward to seeing each of you real soon," says Nearhoof.
Public skating at the Cadet Arena is from 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm Monday through Friday and on Sundays from 1 to 3 pm. The cost is $3.
In addition to public skating, freestyle sessions are offered from 10 am to 11 am on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. A program for home schooling families is planned.
Coaches are welcome to bring students, but will need a copy of their coaches liability insurance, a copy of their US Figure Skating coaches membership card, and their Heads Up Concussion certificate on file in the rink's office. Pro fees must be paid to the rink before giving private lessons.
