CLASS STRUCTURE

  • Instruction is 30 minutes long for all classes 
  • Advanced and Beginner classes have a 15-minute-time-overlap between each session where all skaters are allowed on the ice. As the first session concludes with skaters practicing the skills learned during their lessons, the second group of skaters will warm-up before their session begins:

    Tuesday Overlap: 5:45 – 6:00 PM

    Saturday Overlap: 11:00 – 11:15 AM

Benefits to Advanced class
This class has more advanced students who need more space to gain speed and to practice & perform jumps, spins, and other moves. This session has fewer skaters and is less congested.

Benefits to Beginner class
This class is made up mainly of young and beginning skaters who need more time to get organized and transition onto the ice to be ready for the lesson. The extra ice time helps create a smooth transition.

START TIME: Classes start after the end of the morning Freestyle Session.
Freestyle sessions are $11 for Learn-To-Skate-students and Club members This session is generally for skaters that want to practice their jumps, spins, practice for testing or competitions, etc. This is not a session for beginners.  

PLACEMENT: Each student will be evaluated for level placement and classes may be combined to optimize participation.

LATE ENROLLMENT: Late registrants may receive pro-rated pricing through the 3rd week of class. Email sk8eugene@gmail.com for registration, pricing and payment information. The skate rental portion of the class price does not receive pro-rated pricing.

MISSED CLASSES: One make-up class will be allowed, otherwise NO refunds for missed classes.
