ISI to Aspire Comparison

Coming to us from an ISI program? Keep in mind, the two programs do not match exactly, so this chart is only an approximate level to start. If you have questions, ask a coach. If you have passed ISI Freestyle 5, look into our Advanced Figure Skating options.

If you are in Basic Skills, check out our Learn to Skate program.

Booster Lessons

Booster lessons are mini private lessons designed to give a “boost” with one-on-one instruction. These lessons are scheduled during public or freestyle sessions and lessons can be used to prepare for evaluations or to work on a maneuver that skaters may be struggling with. The lessons can also be used to learn new maneuvers or to get an idea of what private lessons are all about. You can speak to a coach of your choice directly to set up a lesson or contact our director to be paired with a coach.

15 minute private lessons will range $10 – $20

30 minute private lessons will range $20 – $40

Siblings receive $10 off each additional registration after one full-price registration.
