Learn To Skate & Basic Skills

Learn to Skate coordinators: Kayla Tennant and Hope Roskos

Skaters begin in our Learn to Skate program. This assures quality instruction and uniformity in skating programs throughout the United States. Our club usually starts skaters under the age of five in the Snowplow Sam category. Based on skater assessment the skater will move to the basic skills program. There are 6 levels in the Learn to Skate division of the USFS program. All 6 levels and Pre-Freeskate must be completed before moving into the second part of the program - Senior Club (Private Lessons).

The Learn to Skate registration fee includes group instruction, ice time, enrollment in the USFS Learn to Skate Program. Learn to Skate testing will be done on designated dates and will be done by the Learn to Skate Coaches. Skaters will be moved to appropriate groups as needed. If a parent does not wish a skater to be tested, please let the Learn to Skate Coordinator know in advance. If you would like information regarding summer skating, please talk with a coach or one of the Board of Directors.

The Learn to Skate/Basic Skills Program is on Sunday evenings.  Group level and size dictate which time slot a skater is assigned to.  There will be three Learn to Skate/Basic Skills sessions during the skating season followed by ice show practice and the annual ice show. 

The cost for attending one session is $65 or pay for all three sessions at the Fall Registration Session for $175.  Skaters must be registers for Learn to Skate sessions.

Skaters in Basic Skills can also contract time in Junior Club for additional practice ice and time with a coach.  More information about Junior Club is found here.
