Thank You for Celebrating National Skating Month with NSS!

Carey | 6 01 2014











On Sunday, January 5th, the sub-zero temperatures didn’t deter Northfield residents from venturing out to the Northfield Ice Arena for our first annual Free National Skating Month community open skate and performance. The event drew a much larger crowd than anticipated, including Northfield families, skating veterans and enthusiasts, and many first-time skaters of all ages. We even had guests from Belgium and Kenya join us! Northfield skating school staff shared pro tips while participants challenged themselves with Olympic trivia, colored U.S. Figure Skating’s mascot Snowplow Sam, and learned about getting started in skating with NSS’s winter programs. After open skating, guests viewed performances by local skaters and featured guests from our partner clubs in the twin cities. Thanks to our performers for sharing their talents and passion with the audience. Happy National Skating Month!
