Class Descriptions
 

Snowplow Sam Program

The Snowplow Sam levels are designed to help the preschool-age skater develop preliminary coordination and strength to maneuver on the ice. Skaters who are 6 years old and younger should sign up for these classes. Skaters in that age bracket who have never skated before or are new to skating should sign up for Snowplow Sam 1. Skaters may be as young as 3 years old, though they must be potty-trained, okay with being on the ice and excited to ice skate!

Snowplow Sam

A. Sit and stand up with skates on, off Ice & on Ice
B. March in place, forward, then glide on two feet
C. Dip in place & while moving
D. March followed by a long glide
E. Backward wiggles
F. Forward two-foot swizzles
G. Two-foot hop in place
H. Forward skating
I. Forward one-foot glide
J. Forward swizzles & Backward swizzles
K. Forward snowplow stop with skid

Basic Skills

Fundamentals of the sport! These 6 levels of the program introduce the fundamental moves: forward skating, backward skating, stops, edges, crossovers, turns and Mohawks. Upon completion of the Basic 1-6 levels, skaters will have a basic knowledge of the sport, enabling them to advance to more specialized areas of skating. Classes will be 30 minutes with a 30 min practice time. Classes are for ages 7- 13 years old. Skaters within this age bracket who have never skated before should sign up for Basic 1. 

Pre-Freeskate and Freeskate Levels

These levels are the beginning levels to figure skating. Learn advance skating skills, spins, jumps and spirals.

Adults

It's never too late to learn to skate! If you’ve skated as kid or have never been on the ice before, we can teach you how to skate and make sure you learn the basics (or even more advance skating skills too). 

Hockey

For skaters who want to refine their skating skills! No sticks or pads required, lots of edges, drills and crossovers!

Snowplow Sam 4

For skaters who have passed Snowplow Sam 3!

Boys Only Skating Class!

This class is meant for boys of all different levels to skate together! The class will be fun, fast-paced, and the boys will be challenged with new elements and skills! The class will focus on power and good skating techniques! Sometimes the boys will skate altogether and sometimes they will split into groups. Either way, boy skaters can skate together and learn from each other and will skate in a "boy" environment that only a group of guys can create! Please note: this class will not test kids to another level. Skaters should sign up for a regular skating class to test and pass into the next level and do the Boys Class in addition to the regular class. Or, they may just skate the Boys Class if they don't want to test.
