The Learn-to-Skate programs are designed by U.S. Figure Skating to be the best beginning ice skating program that serves the needs of both the recreational and competitive skater.
The curriculum is designed to keep skaters enthusiastic about learning from the time they begin lessons until the time they reach their goals.
Whether their goal is to achieve Olympic fame or simply enjoy the recreational benefits of skating, the Basic Skills Program is the place to start!
The Basic Skills course is intended for ages 4 and up and meets once a week, consisting of 40 minutes of instructional skating and 10 minutes of practice time on the ice.
The Hockey curriculum is designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey skating. Skaters will learn the necessary fundamentals to be successful in game situations. All elements will be taught without a stick and a puck as proper skating techniques are the primary focus of the levels.
Participants in this program can skate the public skate immediately following their class for FREE! (skaters under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult for public skate time)
A fun and recreational program for children (3-5 years old) to learn the basics of ice skating.
Juniors is a program is a program designed to help a skater advance through skating levels at a faster pace by supplementing their training with a class that combines a full ice warm-up, rotating stations that focus on different aspects of skating (jumps, spins, artistry, edges, etc), and music interpretation.
Compete with us is a 60 minute supervised session where skaters will learn a program based on their level. After one session, a skater will be able to compete in any US Basic Skills Compete with Us competition with the program they learn in class. During a session skaters will learn a program based on the last level they have passed, learn how to practice properly on a session, learn the rules of a freestyle session, and how to train and prepare for a competition or show. Classes will also include end of session exhibitions with video so skaters can see their progress.
