Private Ice is ice time reserved for individual or semi-private lessons for multiple skaters. The skater can practice on their own during this ice time or they can schedule a time for a lesson with one of our coaches. The skater must schedule their own private lesson with a coach. See the Coaches page for contact information. Private ice cost is paid to NUFSC but coaching fees are paid directly to the coach. If your coach is not there and you are signed up for private ice you can still use your ice to practice. Refunds will not be permitted if your coach is not there. If you are receiving lessons from a coach on New Ulm Civic Center Open Skate and you are a NUFSC club member, you MUST be purchasing private ice contracts through the club.

Parents of private ice skaters will need to sign up to do one shift of ice monitoring per skater they have on private ice. If you do not sign up and complete your required hour(s) by the end of the winter session in March, you will be charged $35 per uncompleted hour. Extra ice monitoring hours completed will be credited $7 per hour in club credit with a maximum of 3 hours per session per family.
