Special Skates is a learn-to-skate program for children and adults with special needs. Lessons are held at the Burbank Ice Arena on Saturday afternoons from 12:00 Noon - 12:50 PM. Many skater volunteers are needed to assist the participants. Skaters are supported on the ice by "buddies" to provide a safe and fun experience. Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Skaters must bring and wear their own helmets and skates. Skates may be rented at the arena for free! The fee for the program to cover ice time is $130 for Reading residents and $135 for non-residents.
