Aurora Skate Center has been a community resource since 1955. We pride ourselves on our hardwood maple floating floor (81x174; considered a large intermediate sized floor).

We offer something for everyone, from the little ones to "seasoned" adults. Programs include sessions for homeschoolers, children with disabilities, morning exercise (Fitness Skate), school and church fundraisers, Thursday's "Old School Music from the 70s, 80s, & 90s," as well as competitive teams for figure and speed skaters and a Women's Roller Derby league, the Aurora 88s.

Our "School and Skate" programs include:

  • First report card – free pass for every “A" (grades 5 - 8)
  • “Rebate Skate” fundraisers for schools' parent organizations
  • Fundraiser “Skate Parties” for schools' parent organizations
    to read the "small print," see "School and Skate Programs" under the Parties menu).

We have a huge selection of music (157,183 songs and counting!!!) in our computer.

On Mondays we host a live organ-music dance session with Frank Pellico, organist for the Chicago Blackhawks, playing the only triple-deck Hammond X-66 Pipe Organ (w/ 26-ranks of pipes) in the country.
