LEARN TO SKATE
Parent & Me: For beginner skaters ages 3-6, Parent & Me is a great activity for the child and parent to get started on the ice. This class is based on the USFS Basic Skills Program. A child who is a bit nervous going out onto the ice alone can now gain confidence with support from mom or dad close behind while learning the basic skills on how to ice skate.
Snowplow Sam 1-3: If your child is ages 3-6 and has never skated, this is a great starting point to learn the basics of skating. Snowplow Sam classes are bases on the USFS Basic Skills Program. Children will advance through levels 1-3 with each level gradually becoming more challenging.
Basic 1-8: Basic skills are fundamentals of the sport. These eight levels of the program introduce the fundamental moves: forward skating, backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers, turns and Mohawks. Upon completion of the Basic 1-8 levels, skaters will have the basic knowledge of the sport enabling them to advance to the more specialized areas of freestyle jumps and spins. Ages 7 & up.
Advanced Basic 1-4: If your child would like more of a challenge or is repeating the same class for the 1st time. Then this is the class for you! The goal is to help skaters by giving them extra attention to perfecting basic skills of skating for levels 1-8.
Freeskate 1-6: The Freeskate level classes are designed to give skaters a strong foundation on which skaters are encouraged to build up their skills. This is the point where the skater can choose whether to pursue a recreational or competitive approach to the sport of figure skating.
Adult / Teen 1-4: The Adult/Teen curriculum is designed for the beginner adult/ teen skater. It will promote physical fitness and improve balance and coordination while learning proper skating techniques. Although divided into levels, the adult/ teen skater will progress at an individual rate while being challenged and motivated.

Our goal is to teach the basics of figure skating and hockey in accordance with the standards of the USFS Basic Skills Program. We create a learning environment that motivates skaters to learn in a semi-aggressive class setting that promotes proper skating techniques. USFS has established a system that we use to evaluate students. Our main goal is for every skater to correctly learn each skill introduced in their level before they move on to the next. We encourage skaters to move through the program at a rate that allows them to truly master each skill. Skaters will need to practice outside of their lesson at least once a week. Good class attendance and practice habits will help skaters as they attempt to pass their evaluation at the end of the term.
