About Us

Pelham, Alabama, is the home of the Pelham Skate School, Aspire Academy, and Pelham Hockey. The Pelham Civic Complex & Ice Arena is also home to the Birmingham Youth Hockey Travel Team and the Birmingham Figure Skating Club.

The Pelham Skate School's Learn to Skate program is designed to serve the needs of both recreational skaters and those on the path to becoming competitive skaters. The curriculum keeps participants enthusiastic about learning from the time they begin lessons. Whether you want to reach a specific goal or simply want to learn to skate for fun, we're the place for you to be.

Figure Skating

The Skate School works in tandem with the Birmingham Figure Skating Club and is dedicated to the development of figure skating by providing learn-to-skate opportunities and advanced training for competitive figure skating. Both are sanctioned members of United States Figure Skating (USFS). 

Basic 5 and above are eligible to join our Aspire classes and begin the path to training like a competitive figure skater. We offer Specialty Classes such as Icemen, Off-Ice, and Dance classes as well! We also have Synchronized Skating Teams with offerings for skaters starting at Basic 2!


Want to play hockey? The Pelham Skate School can get you ready for that, too. We also work in tandem with Pelham Hockey and Birmingham Youth Hockey and are dedicated to the development of hockey players at the recreational and advanced levels of travel hockey. 

Once skaters complete Basic 4, they can register for Learn to Play. Prospective hockey players can also register for our Learn to Skate to Play Hockey class, Little Toros, held on Thursday nights. Visit the Pelham Hockey website for more on Little Toros and Learn to Play.
