Learn To Skate Information

ICE SKATING @ COOL SPORTS

 

WELCOME TO SKATING

US Figure Skating’s “Learn-to-Skate USA” program offers something for everyone. Once registered, skaters should receive a confirmation email. A welcome letter is attached to this email with all the information you need to know to start your lessons. Please take a moment to read over it in full.

 

CLASS LEVELS & ADVANCEMENT

The beginning skater aged 3-5 should start in our Snowplow Sam classes, while skater 6+ should register for the Basic 1-Pre-Freeskate class. There are also classes for teens and adults of every level. At the end of each session skaters will be evaluated so parents can see their progress. Those skaters moving up a level(s) can present their evaluation sheet to the director and will be given a badge for each level(s) passed.

 

MAKE-UPS

Skaters are encouraged to attend their scheduled lesson times, however, skaters are allotted ONE make-up class per session. This is not in addition to, if registered after the first class, but if a class is missed. No make-ups will be allowed on the last two weeks of class and the Skating Director must be informed 24 hours in advance so that classes are properly staffed.

 

BRING A BUDDY

The last day of classes will be “Bring a Buddy” day for all participants. Each skater will receive a Bring a Buddy pass on week 1, and are encouraged to bring a friend. There is no charge for the Bring a Buddy friend, and they will get a 30 min class and 30 minute practice. Please note NO Bring A Buddy classes during our Summer Mini Sessions.

 

PRIVATE LESSONS

Skaters are encouraged to participate in booster lessons, or schedule weekly private lessons in conjunction with their Learn to Skate USA class.
