Learn to Skate
The Willowbrook Skating Company offers a fundamental Learn to Skate program that provides a fun, goal-oriented curriculum to teach skaters at every level.
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, & 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.
