Learn To Skate USA

Learn To Skate

Whether you wish to pursue hockey or figure skating or just be able to enjoy the occasional arena visit with family and friends, Learn to Skate classes are the first step to success! Each level teaches skills that encourage basic coordination, balance, and movement in a fun atmosphere.

It is important that the level progression is followed and that skaters demonstrate skills efficiently to staff before advancing. Instructors will evaluate students and give progress reports to skaters at the end of each season.


Skating Progression

All skaters start in our Learn to Skate program. Depending on your age you would either start in:

  • Preschool (Age 3)
  • Snowplow Sam 1 (Ages 4 to 6)
  • Basic 1 (Ages 7 to 12)
  • Teen/Adult 1 (Ages 13+)

Once you start lessons you can progress to some other programs whether you want to play hockey or become a figure skater. Whichever it may be, we will help you get there!

 


Class Information

Snowplow Sam 1-3

Pre-school & Snowplow Sam are classes for children between the ages of 3-6 years old and who are developing the basics of movement on ice such as agility, coordination, speed, and balance. 

Basic 1 – 3

Basic is for skaters who are between the ages of 7 to 12 years old. Basic Skills teaches the fundamentals of ice skating and provides the best foundation for all skating disciplines.

After Basic 3 skaters move into our Rising Stars Figure Skating Program.

These classes are designed to teach the fundamentals of hockey skating without a stick or puck. Skaters will learn the basic hockey stance, stride knee bend, and other necessary skills to develop proper skating techniques.

Skaters must pass Basic 2 in hockey skates to enroll in Hockey 1. Skaters in Hockey 1 must wear a hockey helmet, hockey gloves, and skates. 

Skaters in Hockey 2 and above must wear full hockey equipment.
