We are a local, volunteer led organization.

Since 1994, we have provided ice skating
instruction to the Lakes Area Communities.

CESC is pleased to provide professional instruction from members of the Ice Skating Institute (ISI). Our instructors adhere to the standards and curriculum established by ISI.

CESC is delighted to deliver our lessons through Forest Lake Schools Community Education Program. Registration, and more information, is available in the online catalog, available at the Community Education website. Timely updates are available on our Facebook page. Check here for updates

Information about the Forest Lake Sports Center is available from the Forest Lake School District. "Welcome to the North Metro's newest skating facility. We have one year-round rink and another in-season rink that can be rented for turf sports and shows in the spring and summer. Both rinks feature a toasty second-floor viewing area."

More Information About CESC!
CESC is an all volunteer organization! We welcome parent and family volunteers!

We need volunteers to do the following:
Cutting Edge Skating Club Help with the "Tots Class"
Cutting Edge Skating Club Help with the administrative / desk activities at lessons (this includes directing skaters and parents, taking registration information, etc.)
Cutting Edge Skating Club Help with the spring recitial.

All students, especially those at Gamma level and above are encouraged to stay on the ice after their lessons and help with the tots. We find that the older children really enjoy helping the younger students get adjusted. They also get the added benefit of the 1/2 hour of extra practice ice time while the Tots are in their lessons! This is something that is not available with any other skating program in the Twin Cities.
