How to Book a Private Lesson

  1. Persons interested in private lessons will be required to register online using their new UBC Recreation login. If you have not previously registered in a program this year or in a 2020 spring break or summer camp, you will need to set up a new online login. 


  1. Purchase a 5-lesson package. You will use this package to register in each individual private lesson. Please note that you will not be able to register in a lesson without purchasing this package. 


  1. Using your package, register in any of the available private lesson times.


    • An Instructor will be in touch directly to confirm the lesson. If you have any questions prior to the lesson, please contact:
    • We understand it is likely you will build a rapport with your instructor. After a membership is purchased and a few lessons are booked online, you may connect directly with them to book time that may not be listed online. You can connect with our Instructors through email.
Please Note:
  • Lessons must be booked three days in advance.
  • Once you have completed 5 private lessons, you will be required to purchase another 5-pass membership if you wish to continue.
  • Off-Ice Hockey Lessons will take place on our Off-Ice shooting range and dry-floor space. Lessons will be tailored to your individual needs.
