Description of Learn to Skate Levels

Creative learning through games and songs, this class will introduce the sport of skating to children ages 4-6. Helmets are recommended!

This course is for children ages 7 and older. These introductory levels allow new skaters with no prior skating experience to build confidence while learning to skate.

These levels develop all of the fundamental skating skills on the ice. Focus is on learning the ABCs of basic athleticism: agility, balance, coordination and speed. Upon completion of these levels, skaters will be able to confidently advance to more specialized areas of skating.

PRE-FREE SKATE (combination of Basic 7 & 8)

Each free skate level is comprised of a variety of progressive skating skills, transitions, jumps and spins-all of which build on the previous skill, providing skaters a strong foundation of all elements.

This class has four basic skills levels specially targeted for Adults and Teens. The program will improve balance and coordination while teaching proper skating techniques.

The Hockey curriculum is designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey skating. Proper skating techniques for the game of hockey are the primary focus of the levels.
