Learn To Skate – Fall – 2017
Our Learn to Skate USA program offers skaters the foundation they need to succeed in figure skating and hockey. Six progressive levels introduce forward and backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers and turns. Upon completion of Basic 1-6 skaters will be able to confidently advance to more specialized areas of skating. All classes will be well-structured with the focus on proper skills development taught in a positive, FUN, and social environment. Skaters will progress at their own rate and will advance when
mastery is demonstrated.
For more information on any of these classes or the Learn to Skate program, please contact Julie DiLiberto.
