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.
