Becoming an Approved Instructor

If you are interested in giving skating or hockey lessons at Pittsburgh Ice Arena, we’d love to have you!

Things that we need from you:

  • Completed Application (below)
  • Proof of Insurance
  • Completed background check

There are several organizations that offer insurance to private instructors.  One of the most common and least expensive is The Ice Skating Institute.   The ISI application also includes a background check.

U.S. Figure Skating also offers insurance to figure skating instructors who are members of U.S. Figure Skating.

USA Hockey certified coaches do not have coverage for private lessons and must purchase additional insurance.

Once you have passed your background check and submitted your proof of insurance to the rink, you will be an approved instructor at our arena and will be welcome to give lessons during public skating and/or stick time sessions.
