TILTON — Registration is now open for the Magic Blades Figure Skating Club of Tilton. Lessons in Tilton will begin Monday Sept. 24, at 6 p.m. at the Tilton School Ice Arena.

Because Tilton School does not have skate rentals, the club offers a limited number of good used skates, which are available for purchase or seasonal rental, and it will hold a skate swap on Monday, Sept. 17. Inquire about sizes, and show up to try on skates between 4:30 and 6 p.m.

With three six-week sessions, there’s room for everyone of every age and ability. Skaters are divided into levels based on skill, and each skater has a 30-minute group lesson and 30 minutes of practice ice. Parents of the youngest beginners are welcome to join their skaters during free-skate time.

Each six-week session costs $80, but family and multiple-session discounts are available. Discounts are automatically applied when people register online at magicblades.org

Magic Blades is one of more than 1,000 clubs sanctioned by the United States Figure Skating’s “Learn to Skate USA” program. Membership includes a skill book and badges earned for each level, from Snowplow Sam 1 (ages 3-6) to Freestyle 6 (advanced skaters).

The club is planning to repeat its free holiday performance in December.
