Welcome to the new & improved U.S. Figure Skating program…….Learn to Skate USA!! Cool Sports is proud to host such a wonderful program for skaters of all ages & skating levels, knowing that skating skills are the essential common key for participants of all ice sports.
STEP 1: Register with US Figure Skating between July 1st – June 30th. A one-time annual fee of $12 (+ tax & fees) will be required in order to participate in the Cool Sports skating program. Click here to register with US Figure Skating
STEP 2: Enroll in group ice skating lessons @ Cool Sports
This is a very cost effective way to determine if your child is interested in ice skating. Class packages include 9 weeks of group classes, skate rental PLUS 30 minutes of practice time each week! During the final week of the semester skaters are able to participate in a group recital and an “end of season” skating party, where family members + 1 buddy can skate too. Classes are divided by age & skating ability, and are offered for first-time / beginner skaters ages 3 – 5 (Snowplow Sam) and ages 6 – 12 (Basic 1), as well as skaters ages 13 & older (Teen / Adult 1). Upon completion of the beginner skating program, skaters are invited to continue advancing through the US Figure Skating LTS program. Group instruction is offered for intermediate level skaters (Basic 2 – Basic 6) and teen / adults (Teen / Adult 2 – 6).
**Private instruction may be added to your skating agenda along with group classes at any time. Contact the Skating Director to learn more about “booster lessons”. Click here for additional information about the Learn to Skate USA program at Cool Sports**
STEP 3: Competitions
Competitions can start as early as Snowplow Sam and are offered at Cool Sports bi-annually in the Spring & Fall. Skaters interested in competing will need to be connected with a private skating coach, and will require lessons outside of group classes. To learn more about “How to start competing”, contact the Skating Director.
For information on any of the above mentioned classes, please contact the Cool Sports Skating Director, Nikki Copeland-Ronayne, at (865) 218-4500 x 227.
