The Free Skate levels are designed to give skaters a strong foundation on which to build their skills. This is the point where the skater can choose whether to pursue a recreational or competitive approach to the sport of figure skating.

Teen / Adult 1-4

The Teen/Adult Learn To Skate program is for skaters 13 years and up who wish to learn how to skate or improve their basic skating skills. Instructors encourage the development of balance, coordination, mobility and other basic skills at a comfortable pace for each individual. Classes will be divided by ability and/or age if possible.
