Figure Skating Classes
Snowplow Sam 1- 4 (Ages 3-5)
For 3-5 year-olds who have zero or little skating experience. This class uses a variety of games and easy to understand terms to teach the basic skating skills and comfort on the ice.
Basic 1-6 (Ages 6 & up)
Basic skills are the fundamentals of the sport. These six levels introduce the fundamental moves: forward skating, backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers, turns, and Mohawks.
After passing Basic 6 comes pre-freeskate. This class will build on recently learned skills and create a strong foundation to prepare skaters to advance to private lessons and other specialized areas of skating.
The Free Skate levels are designed to give skaters a strong foundation on which to build up their skills. This is where students will learn more advanced moves like jumps and spins
The Adult curriculum is designed for both beginning and experienced adult skaters who wish to improve their skating skills. Participation in the program will help promote physical fitness and improve balance and coordination.
The Therapeutic Skating Program is designed to help physically challenged skaters develop skills and enhance their skating experience. The program encourages skaters to continue to skate for physical recreation and activity while taking limitations into consideration.
