  • 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.
NEW!! Spring Term FreeSkate Class Description

We are changing up the FreeSkate Class for Spring term! It is still 8 weeks long and each week will have a different focus. There will be 2 coaches teaching the class. You still sign-up for all 8 weeks. Skaters will still be working on their levels, but within the different focus each week. The first 5 minutes of class will have a specific on-ice warm-up led by a coach. Please be on time and ready to participate. We will see you there! The schedule is listed below:

Week 1 – Focus on jumps

Week 2 – Focus on power, strength and flow over the ice

Week 3 – Focus on spins, spin combinations, back spins, different entries, flying spins

Week 4 – Focus on footwork with an emphasis on turns – 3 turns, mohawks, brackets, rockers, counters, twizzels, fish, loops, eights and more

Week 5 – Axel class – all class levels will work on skating skills leading up to the axel jump and those at the axel level will work specifically on axels

Week 6 – Focus on power, strength and flow over the ice

Week 7 – Evaluations and synchro

Week 8 – Choreography, uncaptured moves, interpretive skating

Exhibition – April 28

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 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.
