Learn to Skate (LTS)
Learn to skate is a program designed by the United States Figure Skating Association and is a structure followed by many skating clubs across the country. It is designed to teach beginning skaters the fundamentals of skating. It is designed for tots though adults. It is comprised of 8 levels with the first lessons focusing how to stand on the ice and begin to skate forward and ending with Level 8 skaters learning how to jump and spin. This program will prepare the aspiring hockey player, the aspiring figure skater, or the recreational skater wanting to impress their friends!
Beyond the Basics
Beyond the Basics is also a program designed by United States Figure Skating, following a 6 level structure. This class builds on the skills learned in the Learn to Skate program and prepares skaters for more advanced figure skating tests. These classes are a fun way to learn figure skating skills in a social environment.
Rotation class is a class for advanced skaters that focuses 20 minutes on power skating or edge work, 20 minutes on advanced spinning, and 20 minutes on advanced jumps. This class is for skaters who are above Beyond the Basics, or can be taken as a supplement to the Beyond the Basics class.
Please dress warmly in loose fitting layers as skaters tend to get warm as they are working. We recommend gloves or mittens, and typically have extras should you forget a pair. Skaters are advised to wear long socks that do not bunch up inside the skate. Skate rental is available for a nominal fee through the rink.
Rink temperature stays at approximately 52° year round.
